There’s just a week to go until the Progressive F# Tutorials returns to Skills Matter in London, on Nov 6-7, and it’s never too late to book.
The tutorials are a 2 day / 2 track event community event made up of 3 hour long hands on sessions with industry experts, suitable for beginners and experts alike.
The first day will start with a keynote from Don Syme, F# community contributor and a Principal Researcher at Micrsoft Research, on the F# way to reconciliation.
On the beginners track we have:
And on the advanced track:
- Jérémie Chassaing, Hypnotizer founder, on CQRS with F#
- Mathias Brandewinder, F# MVP, on Treasures, Traps & F#
- Michael Newton, of 15below, on Metaprogramming in F#
- Tomas Petricek, Real World FP author, on the F# compiler
There’ll also be a Park Bench panel on the Thursday with experts including Pluralsight author Kit Eason and SQL Provider contributor Ross McKinlay.
