Taming Types in the Cloud
This talk will focus on how we can make use of F#’s type system in tandem with distant data sources in order to provide a stable foundation for developing on top of standard Azure services through the use of type providers. Through both slides and live coding demos, the presentation will illustrate how type providers can simplify many day-to-day tasks when working with Azure Storage, as well as how remote data can be used to intelligently guide type systems to provide extra safety to the developer than otherwise might be expected.
