Introduction to F# Workshop

Mar 19, 2014 · Houston, United States of America

Ryan Riley will lead a workshop introducing F#, an ML functional language built on top of the .NET platform.  Bring your laptop because we will be doing exercises during the meet up. (Get more information about setting up a development environment from the comments area. We will also have some thumb drives at the meet up with the IDE/necessary frameworks.)

This Dojo introduces F# type providers using those from the F# Data library.

The goal of the Dojo is to find 7 secret words to find a secret phrase! To find each word, you need to solve a simple data access task using type providers - such as read XML document, perform JSON-based REST request or read data from the WorldBank; then perform simple processing to find the right word in the result and find the secret phrase! The Dojo comes with a script file containing 7 tasks - to make this a bit harder, the words are not in the original order, so you need to get most of them to find the secret phrase.
