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.”
We will go through the process of developing a Modern Web App as a group, becoming familiar with the process and gaining experience with some of the possible tool choices along the way.
The emphasis will be on the process and concepts rather than particular tools and libraries. That being said, at times we will be a bit prescriptive to keep things streamlined and do-able in a group setting.
We'll take a look at the basic approach to configuring a data service in AngularJS, then explore several options for getting data. Examples of JSON object in code (for initial dev), NodeJS, ASP.NET MVC, and ASP.NET Web Service.
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.
