Norfolk Developers: Let's get function with F# in January

Norfolk Developers are extremely lucky to have Phil Trelford returning for both the evening event and a workshop the following day. Details are below. Please sign-up now.

What: Functional Hands on Workshop with Phil Trelford

When: Thursday, January 8, 2015 @ 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM

Where: The King's Centre, King Street, Norwich, NR1 1PH

How much: £20.00


Prerequisites: A laptop with F# installed.

Ham or Spam

In this session, we'll learn about the Naive Bayes classifier, and take a classic Machine Learning problem, recognizing Spam from Ham.

Hands On FParsec

FParsec is a parser combinator library for F# that let's you quickly build a recursive-descent text parser.

This session will introduce parsing domain-specific and general purpose languages using FParsec. Along the way we'll also cover creating a simple Abstract Syntax Tree (AST) with discriminated unions, and interpreting or compiling the language using pattern matching.

What: Write your own compiler in 24 hours with Phil Trelford

When: Wednesday, January 7, 2015 @ 6:30

Where: The King's Centre, King Street, Norwich, NR1 1PH


Write your own compiler in 24 hours
Phil Trelford (@ptrelford)

Compiler writers are often seen as the stuff of myth and legend.

In this session we'll step behind the proverbial curtain and reveal how compilers actually work.

Expect plenty of live code samples, primarily in F#, covering language design and parsing, all-the-way through to emitting code. This session is aimed as a primer for those interested in writing an external DSL, general purpose language or just understanding how these things work.
