Community for F# / Units of Measure in F#

Please RSVP for instructions on how to join the event.

Description

Some of you may remember the crash of the $125 Million Mars Climate Orbiter in September of 1999. Later review revealed that the Orbiter crashed because of a simple and avoidable problem. One team of software developers assumed English units for their measures while a different team assumed SI. Now maybe you're not building a $125 Million spacecraft to go to Mars but maybe you want to insure that you eliminate errors arising from misunderstandings about the units of measure involved--be that dollars or euros or seconds or minutes or even developer-hours. F# gives us a simple and easy to use mechanism to avoid this sort of dimensional inconsistency in our software. I will be discussing how a developer can specify units of measure in his or her software, how to use F#'s built in dimensional analysis to insure that all dimensions are used consistently and even a few more interesting tricks which can be done via Units of Measure.

Last year I had several friends inquire if I was going to stage another DetroitDevDay. I had taken over from my dear friend Dave McKinnon and I had run it for a couple of go-rounds. Honestly though, I was getting a bit worried that DetroitDevDay was becom[...]

We (the folks who previously put on the DetroitDevDay conference) are going to be starting a new annual event on June 29, 2019 at TechTown in Detroit. I will share more details here as I get them but I wanted to make sure folks are aware.

I’ve been having a conversation with some folks on Twitter about their evidence that mob programming makes Brooks’ Law irrelevant. Someone offered evidence based upon his own experience that mob programming breaks this rule.  I hope I’m not mischaracteriz[...]

So I’ve been trying to keep my development skills somewhat sharp by working on coding up certain data structures in C#.  Course I’d rather do this with F# or even some more interesting FP language (Elm anyone?) but I do have a need to be able to show this[...]

While I’ve done a lot of things that I now regret, I can say that I’ve been somewhat blessed to have learned from some of my mistakes.  So please believe that this advice comes from sad experience and that I’m just trying to help some folks avoid the care[...]
