Month: October 2014
Last week I went on a photowalk with friends. The idea is that people with a shared interest in photography meet up and walk along a pre-prepared path, taking pictures as they go. The walk started at the Hays Galleria near London Bridge and we continued through the Inner London Pool starting on the South side of the river and travelling over to the North side and back again.
Along the way we took in some of London’s finest landmarks through the back streets finding views of London Bridge, the Shard, the Tower of London, Monument and more. This one was part of the Kelby Worldwide Walks and there was a competition to go with it.
I have included a gallery of the shots I took (and decided to keep), and the photo I entered into the competition too.
An introduction to F#: Part 1
A few days ago I ran an introduction to F# course for colleagues at work. The idea of the course was to explain the basics of F# including syntax, programming style and the FSI window, as well as to get people excited. I didn’t correctly judge how long the presentation would take (people were asking lots of questions as I went, which is good!), so I ended up splitting it up into two parts. Here I am publishing a rough written copy of the presentation, compiled from my notes that I worked from as I talked, for you to peruse. It’s somewhat rough, but for those who were there it should serve as a reminder. Next time we will talk through some worked examples of Fizzbuzz & fizzbuzzbaz, we will cover types (classes, structs, interfaces, enums, records, units of measure and discriminated unions). We will also go through some application design, such as: MVC, DDD, CQRS, WTFBBQ.
Classic mashup: An FSharp coding dojo
Yesterday I attended the FSharp Dojo: Picasquez and Velasso at Skills Matter in London.
This dojo is all about manipulating images and creating mashups, like this:
