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

A session at FP Days 2013

Friday 25th October, 2013

1:15pm to 2:00pm (GMT)

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.
