3 Short Talks: 2 on F#, 1 on RC

June 19 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm CDT

Free

Note: As of this month, the in-person component of our meetings will be hosted by PROS at 3200 Kirby Drive, Suite 600.

This month, we’ll have three short talks:

  1. Claude Jager-Rubinson, “The Recurse Center”
    The Recurse Center (RC) hosts programming retreats (“batches”) founded upon the complementary pillars of radical self-direction and community engagement, guided by three directives: “work at the edge of your abilities,” “build your volitional muscles,” and “learn generously.”  Claude will reflect upon his experiences at RC and share what he has been working on during his batch.

    Bio: Claude Jager-Rubinson is Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of Houston–Downtown (Houston, Texas, USA) where he teaches courses on research methods, social inequality, and culture. His research program has three tracts: methodological research on developing formal methods of qualitative research, focusing on qualitative comparative analysis (QCA); sociological research on the relationship between the global political-economy and aesthetic form; and health services research on the conditions that facilitate/hinder the success of interventions designed to improve patient outcomes.

  2. John Cavnar-Johnson “High performance JSON processing in F#”
    So, sometimes I do care about performance. One of those times is when I need to process millions of JSON messages as quickly as possible. Join me for a very quick introduction to writing high performance code in F# using Microsoft’s Utf8JsonReader.

    Bio: John Cavnar-Johnson is a lead software developer at Crane Worldwide Logistics where he gets to write F# every day. In the last 30 years, he’s been a corporate developer, IT sysadmin, trainer, software development manager, IT enterprise architect, consultant, and entrepreneur, but mostly he’s spent his time solving problems and hooking stuff together. In his spare time, he likes reading, drinking craft beer, and playing with his grandkids.

  3. Christopher Bremer, “Active Patterns for Lazy Developers”
    Active Patterns are one of my favorite parts of F# and I’m excited to share all the dumb ways I use them. In short, an active pattern is a function that allows custom destructuring of an object (i.e. in a switch statement). But they are so much more! They compose! They are algebraic! They can replace gross nested if-else statements and anemic domains models! In this lightning talk, I will build a toy console app to show off ways that you, too, can abuse this language feature.Bio: Chris is the software simulation manager at NOV ReedHycalog in Conroe, TX, where he manages a team of engineers and data scientists. His group supports the drill bit design team by providing on demand wellbore simulation and analysis. Prior to working in software, Chris was a research mathematician studying algebraic geometry and representation theory at University of Chicago and Louisiana State University.

Claude Jager-Rubinson is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
