Data is everywhere. Open source world gives us an opportunity to use advanced technical solutions to handle not uncommon problems of huge amounts of data that require low latency access. Can we use our favorite language such as F# for that? The answer is yes! This talk is focused on showing how to create a Cassandra cluster based on Docker, and how to build an application that connects to it and uses it with F# in a cross platform way! I will show how easy it is to use fully open source tools such as F# with Project Scaffold in Xamarin Studio on OSX to create a solution that uses advanced open source distributed database Cassandra on Docker.
Jet.com is an e-commerce startup trying to take on Amazon that builds most of it's backend technology using F#. In this interview, we'll chat with Rachel Reese, a Senior Software Engineer working at Jet.com about their experience with the F# language, but also the F# community. If you have any questions we should ask, ping us at @fsharpconf!
The cloud, on your own terms! Whether you're looking for a flexible way of migrating email to the cloud, or possibly just thinking about running both Microsoft Office 365 and Exchange Server 2013 side-by-side, hybrid is your answer! However, the road to get there can sometimes seem daunting. This session teaches you everything there is to know to successfully deploy Exchange 2013 in a hybrid configuration. During the session, we dig deeper into what the Hybrid Configuration Wizard actually does and set up a hybrid configuration. We cover the various aspects of the hybrid configuration wizard, including how to prepare your environment and avoid common mistakes and pitfalls during and after setup.
Businesses are increasingly seeking to make data-informed decisions. However, there is often uncertainty as to whether so-called actionable insights will be found, and whether their value will offset the up-front cost of finding them! A trick is to understand the typical data-analytics journey, where you are on it, and how to generate value from each step of your way along it. So join me as we go through the typical data analytics journey in a series of examples, from gaining the value from basic descriptive analytics to enabling automated decisions using advanced prescriptive analytics.
