Update: The original venue sold out - more tickets are available for the 8th - 9th March 2018 on EventBrite!
We are running another course, and I'm officially stoked! Read on for the details…
Building Solid Systems in F#
Writing code is only the first part of putting software into production - to run, maintain and scale your product, you'll need to understand and design the overall system.
This 2 day course will take you through best practice in both writing an F# based, distributed system and running it in production - including sensible inter-operation with components written in other languages.
To fit this into 2 days, we'll need to make some opinionated decisions (such as using F#!), but many of the ideas and concepts will be transferable.
- Writing reliable code using F#’s unique language features
- Learn how to apply SOLID (like) principles in a functional style
- How to instrument distributed services
- Continuous Improvement:
- Unit testing
- Performance measurement
- Running distributed systems in development
- Deploying distributed systems to production
- Good practice in dependency management and code organization
You'll come away with:
A git repository of your completed work, which will include:
- Nicely instrumented, benchmarked and unit tested F# services
- A scripted, deterministic deployment process for the overall distributed system
- Real time centralized logging, metrics and health feedback from the system, whether running on the dev machine or in production
- Zero down time continuous deployment for the overall system
You need to have:
- a basic knowledge of F# syntax
- a reasonable background knowledge of software development
You need to bring laptop with:
- a relatively recent F# development environment (you’ll need to be able to build dotnet core 2.0 apps)
- Minikube and kubectl installed
We’ll also ask you to pre-download some code and containers in advance so that we can hit the ground running on the first day; we’ll pass you the details of that before the event.
Is this a replacement for Level Up Your F#?
No; Level Up Your F# focussed on the details of the F# language, this course is focussed on building systems. We will be running Level Up Your F# again in the future.
Where/when will it happen?

What have other people said about your courses?
Hassan Ezzahir, Lead developer (Contractor) at BNP Paribas
I’ve been trying to learn F# for several years now and got almost all the existing books on the subjects.
Yet, I felt there was a gap between my good understanding of the language and actually applying it on bigger “real” projects.
Michael’s great training skills has enabled me to quickly practice some advanced topics I was less familiar with.
With my newly acquired knowledge, I’m confident I will be able achieve some great (and fun) developments with F#
Alexander Battisti, Senior Software Developer (Machine Learning) at Freeletics GmbH
I found "Level Up your F#" a good course teaching advanced topics in F# that are commonly ignored or glossed over when you are on your own, but are useful enough so you shouldn't ignore them. The exercises were difficult in a good way and engaging. I definitely recommend the course for anybody after they took their first serious steps in learning F#.
