Lambda Calculus isn’t just a fancy word: it defines our software, our numbers and perhaps even reality itself.
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.
Don't Fear the Monad
Functional programming is increasing in popularity these days given the inherent problems with shared mutable state that is rife in the imperative world. As we march on to a world of multi and many-core chipsets, software engineering must evolve to better equip software engineers with the tools to exploit the vast power of multiple core processors as it won't come for free as it did in the recent past which was predictably based on Moore's law.
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.
Linguistics and Compilers
Compilers are tools typically used to create binary we call software. Kenneth Miller has some interesting thoughts on extending the metaphor (and tools) to both human and programming languages.
With such a conspicuous title you'd think this was meant to be ironic or a post-modern arthouse diatribe. Nope, I'm just asking you to literally think differently, because the future depends on it. Non-ironic drama intended.
