In this video you'll see Scott Guthrie make an exciting announcement that Visual Studio Code is now open source! Scott is then joined on stage by Erich Gamma, who pushed the "open source" button in the GitHub repo and demoed the new extensibility support with his own custom extension.
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.
