I hope you had a good start into the New Year and are happily in full production mode again :)
I am excited to announce another Zurich F# meetup for Monday, March 30 at 7 PM. If you come for the first time, please download this pdf to make sure you find the location. A fee of CHF 10.-- will be charged to cover part of the expenses.
The meetup will be held by Riccardo Terrell, a Software Architect at Microsoft who is passionate about functional programming. He is active in the F# community and started the DC F# user’s group. Riccardo is a believer in polyglot programming as a mechanism in finding the right tool for the job. He likes to describe himself as a functional guy living in an imperative world.
F# is a fantastic modern cross-platform programming language that can be used to develop Web based solutions.
In this session, Riccardo will go over several features that F# provides to write simple yet high-performance web based solutions. He will discuss the benefits utilizing a functional approach including composition, type providers and computation expressions.
Riccardo will use the CQRS (Command Query Responsibility Segregation) pattern in an MVC Web project leveraging the power of Reactive Extension combined with the efficiency of SignalR for bi-directional communication between web servers and clients.
Participants will leave with the skills needed to enhance their development skills for modern web applications, by adding a modern programming language to their “tool box”.
I am looking forward to receiving Riccardo in Zurich and seeing many of you at this highly informative, practice-oriented meetup.
