Getting Started with Functional Programming in F#

  • Next Dimension

    3020 Devon Drive, Windsor, ON (map)

    42.279648 -82.997353

  • Note:  This is being held at Next Dimension office on Devon Drive, Windsor (lots of parking).  This will be a remote session by guest speaker: Reid Evans.

    Talk Details

    Functional programming is one of those things that’s only good for math and statistics and stuff right??? Wrong! In this session we’ll start from scratch and code a multi tier application using functional techniques. Attendees will see F#’s Type Providers which are used to statically type check our data access, and asynchronous data access to help the app scale. This is a live coding talk designed to show unique features of the F# language and how it is directly applicable to solving business problems.
