Abstract

 F#, just like other non-pure functional languages, allows you find the sweet spot between FP practices and OO language pragmatism. Most of the advanced features of F# give you the power to change the language and to introduce a higher level of abstraction to your code. In this talk, we will discuss active patterns, computation expressions, parsers, using type providers and more. These language features help you make your code simpler and easier to maintain.

 

Bio

 I ended up as a Software Developer, I am pretty sure there was no other viable option. My current technical interests are F#, games, programming languages and philosophy of computing .

I really enjoy finding different ways to write code, sometimes for performance, other times for succinctness, sometimes, just because you can, there is no better way to learn than trying.

When I am not working I tend to play with Haskell or other languages or cats
