Last week I had tons of fun (and learning!) at Øredev conference in Malmö, Sweden. My full
writeup is still yet to come, but as videos are popping up, I’d like to show you how well F# and functional programming in general were represented during conference. On second day, you could do a streak of 3 F# talks one after another!
This are links to talk pages, where you can find video (or in some cases not – hope it will pop up soon), grouped by presenters, sorted randomly. Let’s start with F# focused links:
- Concurrent applications with F# agents – by Rachel Reese
- Discovering type providers in F# 3.0 – by Rachel Reese
- F# for C# developers – by Phil Trelford
- F# for trading – by Phil Trelford
And off to less F#, but still interesting functional talks:
- Functional principles for object-oriented developers – by Jessica Kerr – this was awesome, one of best talk I attended at Øredev. Also had plenty of F# examples.
- Hands on with Clojure – by Bodil Stokke (warning: most likely contains ponies)
- Programming, only better – by Bodil Stokke
Bodil also gave talk on implementing your own lisp (in Clojure, of course) at nearby Foo Cafe. This was pretty hardcore, and I didn’t get much from it. But it was recorded, so smarter people will probably make use of that.
As you can see, lots of functional love. As always you could always hang out with speakers between/after sessions and ask them (in my case) some lame questions or see them hacking around. Great fun, and good opportunity to learn new stuff.
