- Strategies for processing data with the F# platform
- Parsing data with FParse
- Handling large data streams
- Designing and controlling asynchronous workflows
- Managing asynchronous input with F# agents
- Processing discontinuous input with reactive extensions
- Using type providers to simplify handling data from relational databases, web APIs, Azure services, and non- .NET languages
F# agents give you an asynchronous program model with three
important advantages: first, agents can keep private, isolated, and
state; second, agents respond to messages in FIFO order; and third,
agents are lightweight, and you can run thousands at a time.
- Basic programming grammar and syntax of F#.
Today, developers are tasked with building applications in less time, while maintaining high standards of quality, reliability, security, and performance.
This video course presents practical techniques for handling real-world data programming challenges. We'll first see how to build efficient, extensible engines to parse and process documents and data streams. Then we'll study how to process large sets of data with maximal performance and efficiency using asynchronous workflows, agents, and .NET reactive extensions. Next, we'll learn to use type providers, a unique F# feature that lets us program with data as if it were code.
By the end of the course, you will be capable of writing solutions with less code, fewer bugs, and better alignment with business requirements.
