Developing and Integrating WebSharper applications with Facebook

A session at Tech Mesh

Tuesday 4th December, 2012

11:35am to 12:25pm (GMT)

In this talk, I will present some of the work we are doing at IntelliFactory to enable creating mobile and web applications with F# that can interface with social networks such as Facebook. I will demonstrate how one can develop using various functional programming techniques a simple web application in F# that can be run in the browser, in a mobile app, and as part of a Facebook page - all from the same code base. This work leverages our open source WebSharper framework, the main web and mobile development framework for F#. WebSharper provides powerful functional programming abstractions that enable modeling first-class, type-safe, composable web applications and user interfaces, and automates the translation of client-side F# code to JavaScript.

Talk objectives: The talk aims to demonstrate the use of functional web programming abstractions and how WebSharper enables creating web and mobile applications in F# in a succinct and robust way.

Target audience: Developers, Application architects, IT Managers and Decision Makers.
