Mathias Brandewinder - The Great @fsibot Caper (Slides)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This is a tale of adventures with bots, clouds and compilers. Not so long ago, an idealistic developer with too much time on his hands decided that coding with F# was so much fun, it should be shared with all on Twitter. And so he wrote a Twitter bot, @fsibot (https://twitter.com/fsibot), before the @Wolframtap made that idea cool. And, lo and behold, the people used @fsibot to create great things. After all, what could possibly go wrong with letting people run arbitrary code remotely? As it turns out, quite a bit, even in 140 characters. And so began the epic adventure of rescuing @fsibot from the forces of Evil. In this talk, we will tell the story of how that F# twitter bot came to being, and how (spoiler alert!) Azure and the F# Compiler Services came to the rescue, and saved it from a terrible fate.
