Grappling the JavaScript Ecosystem with F# and Fable

You can do *anything* with JavaScript, from web applications to artificial intelligence.
That said, not all of us love working in a weakly-typed dynamic language.

Fable is a free and open-source tool that can solve not only these pains but further fulfill the desire to write full-stack web and mobile applications in a single language while sharing code across platforms.

In this session, be prepared for a head-first overview of F#, how to compile it to JavaScript, and learn about how real businesses use F# to create full-stack mobile and web applications powered by Fable. You'll walk away with concrete next steps any road of success Fable can lead you on.

Graphs: Theory, Love, and Data Storage

Everything is connected, from our microscopic brain neurons to the grandiose universe wherein all bodies of mass are pulled towards each other in a graph of gravitation.

In a fashion as structured as graphs themselves, we'll use my deep love for graphs as a catalyst for the exploration, understanding, and usage of these highly-useful structures. We'll start off with an introduction to what graphs are, how we can work with them, and what 'graph theory' is. From there, we'll delve into usage within programming languages of several paradigms, including JavaScript, F#, and C#. Finally, we'll look at graphs as an effective way to store real business data and the benefits that this path lends itself to.
