Track 1: Tech - All your types are belong to us!

A session at NorDevCon 28th February 2014

Friday 28th February, 2014

11:30am to 12:15pm (GMT)

Big Data tasks typically require acquiring and analysing data from a wide variety of data sources, visualizing the data and applying a barrage of statistical algorithms. This talk will show how this can be accomplished in Visual Studio on Windows or Xamarin Studio on Mac and Linux using F#'s REPL and Type Providers.

Type Providers give typed access to a wide range of data sources from CSV, JSON and XML to SQL, OData and Web Services, instantly without a code generation step. The Type Provider mechanism can also be used to analyse data with direct access to statistical packages like R and MATLAB as well as all the existing .Net libraries.

Finally visualizations can be generated using F#'s desktop charting libraries, or with ASP.Net and even JavaScript libraries like HighCharts.

Expect a sprinkling of anecdotes drawn from experiences working on large machine learning systems at Microsoft, and plenty of live demos.
