Making Magic with F# Type Providers


Do you want programming languages which making JSON data simple? Which scale to internet-scale information sources like data markets and the Bing and Google Knowledge Graphs?  Which allow you to integrate all the information spaces of the modern enterprise? The modern world is highly information rich, but our programming languages are information sparse, especially our strongly typed ones. "Information Rich Programming" (IRP) is an emerging direction for strongly-typed language design and implementation, and the innovative F# language from Microsoft is leading the way in this area. Can we gives types to "everything", and if so, should we? What does it mean for future languages? We'll demonstrate what F# 3.0 specifically offers in the area of IRP,a magical blend of programming and data.

Inspire all programmers and data engineers, and educate potential F# users
