I’m delighted to say that G-Research will again be sponsoring pizzas at the meetup.

Please also sign up with our hosts, Skills Matter:

Workshop for those who would like to learn F# and functional languages in general, aimed at attendees who have a general knowledge of object-oriented languages like C#, Java, Python, JavaScript etc.

The workshop consists of 2 segments:

1 – Presentation explaining the fundamental concepts & advantages of F#
2 – Interactive workshop where we will each build a Logo Turtle from scratch

Please bring along a laptop if you can; if you haven’t got one available we will happily pair you up with other attendees or the presenters to work through the exercise
