Earlier this week I gave a talk at the first London WebSharper User Group meetup about WebSharper 2.0 and some of its new features such as sitelets and the new Visual Studio templates. This was a longer, class-like talk with many technical points discussed - a great source of information for anyone interested in WebSharper.
We are making excellent progress on releasing WebSharper 2.0 in the coming weeks, and have just put out the first beta version of WebSharper 2.0, ready for some public testing and community feedback. Here are the links:
We are thrilled to announce the London WebSharper User Group - a forum for WebSharper professionals and enthusiasts based in London, UK to exchange ideas and experiences, and to serve as a major hub for furthering the interest in functional web programing. We sincerely hope that it will add significant value to our WebSharper user community.
I am very excited about my recent <a href="http://mvp.support.microsoft.com/gp/mvpawardintro">Microsoft MVP 2010 award</a> for my work in F#, and I would like to thank everyone who has recommended me for receiving this award. Foremost, I would like to thank ...
Last week I had <a href="http://www.communityforfsharp.net/september-2010-live-meeting">a Community for F#</a> talk on WebSharper where I presented a small WebSharper application to implement a client-based, persistent shopping cart, and I received numerous emails asking for the source code for that talk. So in this post I am going to show you the full source code and walk you through what I did to implement the shopping cart functionality. The code provided here should work on any existing 1.0.X installation, preferably on the latest 1.0.28 release.
Functional programming languages have been a hot topic of academic research for over 35 years, and have seen an ever larger practical impact in settings ranging from tech startups to financial firms to biomedical research labs. At the same time, a vigorous community of practically-minding functional programmers has come into existence. CUFP is designed to serve this community. The annual CUFP workshop is a place where people can see how others are using functional programming to solve real world problems; where practitioners meet and collaborate; where language designers and users can share ideas about the future of their favorite language; and where one can learn practical techniques and approaches for putting functional programming to work. CUFP 2010 will feature three hour Functional Programming tutorials given by language experts on the first day and Experience and Technical Talks on day two. Attendees may attend either or both days.
You can now install WebSharper through Visual Studio 2010's Extension Manager with a single click.
There is still time to submit your F# talk/presentation/report/demo proposal to <a href="http://www.cs.rit.edu/~mtf/ml2010/">ML 2010</a>, co-located with ICFP in Baltimore, MD, USA!
We are pleased to announce the availability of our standard training courses, now enhanced to follow the latest F# release, in California! The first in our three-part series, F# Programming I, is scheduled to start from July 6 in San Francisco and Los Angeles, with Part II and III following.
This is an exciting time for the F# world. Monday, April 12, witnessed the launch of VisualStudio 2010 and the release of the official F#, 2.0. Great job, F# team! On our part, today we are pleased to announce the availability of WebSharper™ Platform 1.0.
IntelliFactory is inviting applications for a range of F# positions - we are seeking F# developers, architects, interns, WebSharper developers, agile development/project managers, and seasoned sales/KAM professionals. To be considered, please send your resume and short introduction to hr [at] intellifactory.com.
Functional programming languages have been a hot topic of academic research for over 35 years, and are rapidly being adopted in diverse real-world settings ranging from from tech startups to financial and biomedical firms. A vigorous community of practically-minding functional programmers has come into existence, using them as tools to build reliable and fast systems. CUFP is designed to serve this community. The aim is for CUFP to be a place where people can see how others are using functional programming to solve real world problems; where practitioners meet and collaborate; where language designers and users can share ideas about the future of their favorite language; and where one can learn practical techniques and approaches for putting functional programming to work.
ML is a family of programming languages that includes dialects known as Standard ML, Objective Caml, and F#. The development of these languages has inspired a large amount of computer science research, both practical and theoretical. This workshop aims to provide a forum to encourage discussion and research on ML and related technology (higher-order, typed, or strict languages).
