  • Excel coding errors are destroying world economies and F# (with Tsunami) is here to stop them!

    by Matthew Moloney

    Ever wish you could code Excel with a Functional Programming Language (F#) instead of VBA?

    Excel has over 400M users all over the world from many backgrounds including business, finance, and governments. On average large spreadsheets have over 12 substantial coding errors. A perfect example of this is the Reinhart-Rogoff paper (Growth in the time of Debt) where a trivial coding error helped them make the case for austerity around the world.
    In this presentation I will demonstrate how to prevent such errors while taking advantage of the rest of the .Net ecosystem by bridging the worlds of Excel and .Net with F#.

    I will give rapid fire demonstrations of
    * Big Data;
    * Data Science;
    * Cloud Computing;
    * GPGPU; and
    * Compiling F# Excel UDFs.
    All from within Excel.
