Wir freuen uns im November Mathias Brandewinder aus San Francisco bei uns an zwei Abenden begrüßen zu dürfen.

Über unseren Gast:

Mathias Brandewinder has been developing software for about 10 years, and loving every minute of it, except maybe for a few release days. His language of choice was C#, until he discovered F# and fell in love with it. He enjoys arguing about code and how to make it better, and gets very excited when discussing TDD or functional programming. His other professional interests include machine learning and applied math. Mathias is a Microsoft F# MVP and the founder of Clear Lines Consulting. He is based in San Francisco, blogs at, and can be found on Twitter as @brandewinder.

Am 25.11.2014 m 19 Uhr präsentiert Mathias seinen Vortrag.
F# for the C# Developer

Back in 2010, Visual Studio came with a new language on board: F#. Out of curiosity, I started playing with it, and got hooked. F# is a fantastic language - it mixes functional and Object Oriented approaches seamlessly, encourages writing bug-free code (it is virtually impossible to get a null exception...), comes with great features, and is incredibly productive. In this talk, I will give a intro to F# for C# developers, illustrated with live code samples, and discuss where it fits and how you can get started with it!

Am 26.11.2014 um 19 Uhr führt Mathias ein Coding Dojo durch.
A Gentle Introduction to Machine Learning with F#

Machine Learning is the art of writing programs that get better at performing a task as they gain experience, without being explicitly programmed to do so. Feed your program more data, and it will get smarter at handling new situations. 

Some machine learning algorithms use fairly advanced math, but simple approaches can be surprisingly effective. In this session, we'll take a classic Machine Learning challenge from, automatically recognizing hand-written digits (, and build a classifier, from scratch, using F#. So bring your laptop, and let's see how smart we can make our machines! 

This session will be organized as an interactive workshop. Come over, and learn yourself a Machine Learning and F# for great good! No prior experience with Machine Learning required, and F# beginners are very welcome - it will be a great opportunity to see F# in action, and why it's awesome.

To get the most from the session please try and bring a laptop along with F# installed (ideally either Xamarin Studio, MonoDevelop or Visual Studio); you can find detailed instructions for OSX, Linux and Windows on

And if you've never used F# before and want a head-start, check the great online intro tutorials on
