Phil Trelford: F# for C# devs, and F# for trading

Phil Trelford will be in town from the UK, and will give two F# talks:

1.) F# Eye for the C# guy

This talk is for C# programmers who are curious about F#, a multi-paradigm and cross-platform programming language.

In: test driven development, classes and functions
Out: maths, monads and moth-eaten jumpers

Expect plenty of practical examples with live code samples, including interop between C# and F#.

2.) F# for Trading

Effective Trading is about having up-to-date detailed information. Data is acquired from a variety of sources and combined to imply new information. F# is becoming a popular choice for this kind of application. Based on hands on experience of building a Commodity Trading platform I will describe and demonstrate areas where F# gives you leverage like domain modeling, computation and concurrency.

Phil Trelford is a Software Architect at an ISV supplying real-time electronic trading software. His career so far spans over 15 years, with experience in video games, leisure, retail and financial sectors.

Phil’s recent commercial development work has been with C++, C#, SQL, JavaScript, and includes over 2 years developing F# applications at Microsoft.

Phil is also a founding member of the F# Software Foundation, whose mission is to promote, protect, and advance the F# programming language, and to support and facilitate the growth of a diverse and international community of F# programmers.

    Let's get the word out to all our C# friends. Phil has a neat blog post where he transmutes C# to F#.
