Interesting 55 minute video on “SOLID Architecture in Slices not Layers” by Jimmy Bogard. Recorded at the NDC 2015 conference last June…

https://vimeo.com/131633177

Here’s the abstract for the session: “For too long we've lived under the tyranny of n-tier architectures. Building systems with complicated abstractions, needless indirection and more mocks in our tests than a comedy special. But there is a better way - thinking in terms of architectures of vertical slices instead horizontal layers. Once we embrace slices over layers, we open ourselves to a new, simpler architecture, changing how we build, organize and deploy systems.”

THE SELECT GROUP

In this session, we are going to take a look at the famous Kaggle Titantic competition (https://www.kaggle.com/c/titanic) from an F# point of view. At the end of the session, you should be able to predict if a person lived or died based on their demographic information.  You will then make an entry into Kaggle to see how you did against all of the other submissions.



This session will be organized as a dojo / interactive workshop. Come over, write some code together, and learn yourself some F# for great good! No prior experience required, F# beginners are very welcome - it will be a great opportunity to see F# in action, learn together, and see why F# is awesome.

To get the most from the session, please try and bring a laptop along with F# installed (ideally either MonoDevelop or Visual Studio Web Express/Full Edition). Check out fsharp.org for instructions on how to get F# ready on your machine.
