Christopher Bremer, “A More Expressive Foreign Function Interface (with F# Computation Expressions)”

February 24, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm CST


Note: Due to the winter storm in Houston, we’ve rescheduled this talk for the following week at Wed 2/24 at 7pm.  Connection info remains the same.

Abstract: One of the funny things about working with engineers is how differently they think about programming. They use strange languages (MATLAB! ANSYS!) and are far more concerned about vectors and meshes than serialization and data structures. I will talk about how using an expressive language like F# allows me to foster a productive relationship with development engineers. In particular, I will show how I use F# computation expressions to interface with MATLAB in a way that does not sacrifice comprehensibility.

Bio: Chris is a software engineer working in the energy industry. Previously, he was a mathematician studying algebraic geometry and an amateur jazz musician. He lives north of Houston with his family where he enjoys thinking about math and programming, listening to jazz, and reading.

    A quick update regarding the winter storm that has hit Houston (and Texas and much of the southcentral U.S.). We very much hope that everybody is safe and for those of you that have lost power and/or water, we hope that they are restored soon.
    While there still remains a great deal of uncertainty (including the possibility of rolling blackouts), we’ve decided to go forward with tomorrow evening’s meeting as scheduled. We hope that you’ll be able to join us! Bring a warm beverage!
