Functional Programming for Production Quality Code
This session presents practical functional techniques for achieving correctness in production quality code from strongly-typed functional-first languages. Discussion and examples are in F# and SQL. The techniques and languages demonstrated are applicable across Linux and Windows servers, all mobile devices (iOS, Android, etc.), and single board computers such as Raspberry Pi.
Jack Fox is an F# MVP who works as a software engineer at Tachyus, the first Silicon Valley tech company to implement full stack F# across all its production software platforms. He has a passion for software correctness, and sees strongly-typed functional-first languages, and F# in particular, as the key to consistently correct production software. He has presented functional and type-theory topics at SVCC, Chicago Lambda Jam, the N.Y. City F# User Group, the S.F. Bay Area F# User Group, and S.F. Types, Theorems, and Programming languages.
