As the availability and feature set of the Kinect expands, it is becoming more important for .NET developers to become familiar with the abilities of this amazing device. This talk will bring you up to speed with the basic capabilities of this device. Starting with simple camera support, we will work our way all the way through voice recognition. Then, we will take a look at the newest revision of the hardware to give you a head start on what to expect.

F# SIG - Concurrency in F# (Riccardo Terrell from MSFT)

10/21/2014 6:00:00 PM ( Add to calendar... )

Registration and event details...

Writing safe concurrent programs has become a principal concern in the past years, as multicore CPUs have become more widespread. Functional languages help developers support concurrency by encouraging immutable data structures that can be passed between threads and machines without having to worry about thread safety or atomic access. Functional languages also tend to make it easier to write better concurrency-friendly libraries. F# programmers can take advantage of immutable data structures to make massively scalable, concurrent applications that are simple and easy to write. We will take a look at Async-Workflow, Events and Observable streams and the Actor Pattern to develop high concurrent application.

Riccardo Terrell is a Software Architect at Microsoft. He has been always passionate about writing parallel algorithms and high scalable systems. He was responsible for the development team that built a distributed and concurrent system to process and analyze in parallel a high volume of medical images in Northern Italy.
