Hi all,

the next meetup of the Zurich F# Users will take place on Wednesday, May 29, 2013 at 18:45 at NetException GmbH (as usual). If you attend for the first time, make sure to have this (http://files.meetup.com/2794852/fsharp_meetup_2013-05-29.pdf) announcement with you. It contains a correct view of the location (the view on Google maps is slightly wrong).

The first half hour will be for networking/socializing, with sandwiches and drinks included. After that, Pantelis Petrogiannakis will speak about Embracing the Cloud with F#. Pantelis is owner of Nessos Information Technologies S.A., an Athens-based Microsoft Gold Partner with ISO 9001 quality certification with focus on orchestrated business solutions. Nessos has recently completed their flagship product {m}brace. Written in F#, it abstracts the underlying computer infrastructure with a monadic approach to cloud computing. Thus, the developer can combine sophisticated algorithms with "big data" processing, rapid prototyping-style, without worrying about things like data locality, information exchange between nodes, or node failures:

[] let hello args = cloud { return foo args } I am delighted that Pantelis will travel to Zurich to hold a presentation about yet another domain where F# excels. I am looking forward to see many of you again, and some new members as well! Until then, enjoy the spring

Best regards, Marc
