October 7, 2013 – Meeting Information

For our October meeting, long time member Bill Sorensen will bring out the true spirit of our user group, sharing an interesting piece of code he’s been working on. Finite State Machines. We all use them in one form or another. Come learn about them and see how Bill built one using F#. And, to be sure you’re familiar enough F# syntax to appreciate the presentation, Keith Dahlby will spend 30 minutes before Bill’s presentation going over F# syntax. This will be a great night at CRineta!

Topic: How I Built a Finite State Machine in F# – FSM.NET

FSM.NET: A simple “stateless” finite-state machine library for .NET, written in F# – open-source at https://github.com/TrueWill/FSM.NET . We’ll be covering what a state machine is, why you’d want to use one, alternative libraries, and a little about domain-specific languages (DSLs) and functional programming.

Speaker Bio:

Bill Sorensen is a developer at Integrated DNA Technologies, primarily working in C#. His other interests include functional programming, photography, and all things Gothic. He blogs at http://www.truewill.net/.

If you plan on attending our meeting on October 7th, please RSVP.

    Great presentation tonight by Bill, speaking out of his own direct programming experience and passion. Bill combined things he’d learned from the last two books our book club has read (F# and DSLs) and built a useful tool that also solidified his understanding of the material.
