Lambda Calculus isn’t just a fancy word: it defines our software, our numbers and perhaps even reality itself.
Next Meeting Name
Our next event is actively being planned and is VIRTUAL! We'll be hosting a watchparty on a well known conference presentation that we're all missing. It'll be great fun.
Bare Metal Functional Programming With Symbolics
The Symbolic's Lisp Machine is an amazing and unique computer designed with one thing in mind: run functional programs as fast as possible using hardware specifically designed for the language!
Concepts of functional programming is made much harder when the developer is also trying to learn a new language, like Haskell, Scala or Clojure at the same time. With that in mind, we focus on relating functional concepts in a common language: Java.
Introduction to F#
With a pre-recorded presentation, we explore the unique features that F# offers to functional developers: functions, composition, piping, discriminated unions, active patterns and computation expressions.
F# Type Providers
Introduced in F Sharp 3.0, Type Providers are components that provide types, properties, and methods to an application to facilitate information rich programming. In other words a type provider automatically exposes the types which represent provider’s data structures.
