.NET Saturday in SkyPoint

May 27

I’ve visited the .NET Saturday organized by the Ciklum Company on May 26. I’ll tell you a little bit about my impressions.

The program was really nice, exactly as the organizers warned. There were:

  • Eugene Zharkov – “Windows 8 Metro App: JavaScript Dark Side”;
  • Petr Afanasiev – “Perfect API: ASP.NET Web API inside!”;
  • Sergey Koshel – “When optimistic lock is not a case (.NET/SQL)”;
  • Vitaliy Domnikov – “F# – To Iterate is Human, to Recurse, Divine”;
  • Alexandr Ivanitskiy – “XAML – a markup language for WPF, Silverlight and Metro applications”.

In addition to the main screen, there was an additional screen installed for tweets with the CiklumNET hashtag, which perfectly entertained the audience.

It is a pity that I couldn’t attend all the lectures, but Vitali’s lecture on F# made a great impression on me, however, the lecture by Alexander was saved only by trolls twitting about cups, women, and dresses. So, from now on, I will visit meetups in Ciklum more frequently.

Oh yes, I almost forgot. I promised to try F# and finally did it. The program is the calculation of factorial of the n number.

// Create function for calculating factorial
let rec factorial n = match n with
| 0 -> 1
| _ -> n * factorial (n - 1)
 
// using System
open System
 
Console.Write(@"Enter n = ")
let n = Convert.ToInt32(Console.ReadLine())
 
// Calculate and write result
let result = factorial n
Console.Write(@"Result = ")
Console.WriteLine(result)
// Create function for calculating factorial
let rec factorial n = match n with
| 0 -> 1
| _ -> n * factorial (n - 1)

// using System
open System

Console.Write(@"Enter n = ")
let n = Convert.ToInt32(Console.ReadLine())

// Calculate and write result
let result = factorial n
Console.Write(@"Result = ")
Console.WriteLine(result)

It is really possible to write programs on this functional language quite quickly and efficiently if you want to work with math functions. Dark side is the same: you have to think 🙂

  • Мммм… круто, привет чашке 😉

  • Programulya

    Я её не выиграла)
    Выиграл парень с ником @CiklumCup и был очень счастлив или счастлива)

  • Вот ему, парню-Чашке я и передавал привет)
