NashFP + NashF#: Writing games with F#
69pm Emma's Bistro Cafe

Andrea Magnorski (in from Dublin for one night only) will lead us through a lab: "Writing games with F#". Andrea works at BatCat Games where they describe her as "co-founder, business-wizard and coder-lady".


We will be using Duality (an open source game engine) with an F# plug-in (also OSS) to create power-ups (or power downs? ) to Breakout.

To get the most from the session please try and bring a laptop along with F# installed. (Install F# on Windows)

For the rest I'll give you a link to github repo where the rest will be.

If you don't have (or want) Windows, just buddy up with someone. If you're really adventurous you might try to make it work on Linux or Mac. (* this might not work)

The game will be easier to play if you bring a mouse!

At Lonely Planet we're rebuilding our all our products and services on top of a new hypermedia API platform. I'd like to share a few things we've discovered about API tools and API documentation along the way.

  • The vision: how API tools and consumer-driven contracts can support API product development and continuous delivery
  • The contenders: the major tools like Swagger vs RAML vs Apiary API Blueprint vs I/O Docs vs Cucumber
  • The decision: how we used a framework to evaluate the tools, and the choices we made
  • The reality: we need better tooling for hypermedia APIs
  • The future: what we - the community - need to build, on the foundations of ALPS, JSON HyperSchema, IDL...
