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.
Much has been made of the open-source approach to developing the latest version of the .NET framework and tools. What does that mean for me and my organization?
