I have a quite busy life, and this blog has not been updated very often these last years... the occasional F# advent calendar post, and even not this year.
Here are a few things I did during this time:
I spoke at some conferences:
- NCrafts - Paris - May 2014: DDD, Event Sourcing & F#, a Match in Heaven
- Scala.io - Paris - October 2014: Event Sourcing <3 Functional Programming
- DDD Exchange - London - June 2014: DDD, the Hotel Business and the Effects of Time
- F# Progressive tutorial - London - November 2014 : Enterprise CQRS with F#
- NCrafts - Paris - May 2015: If you're not live coding, you're dead coding
- NDC - Oslo - June 2015: Functional EventSourcing in F#
- DDDEurope - Amsterdam - January 2017: Thermodynamics of software + 2 days Functional Event Sourcing workshop
- NewCrafts - Paris - may 2017: Lambdas - the Architectural way to Serverless
- F# Exchange - London - April 2017: Ukulele tabs in F#
- KanDDDinsky - Berlin - September 2017: 1 day Functional Event Sourcing workshop
During the last few year I progressively introduced F# at work, in production and more and more coworkers are working in F# now.
This was long, but finally not that difficult in a microservice architecture, since each part can easy be isolated from others.
Growing a system and a team to work on it take time and patience. Climbing scale steps one by one is a constant challenge, an I learnt a lot in the process.
I read books, met a lot of interesting people and tried to learn as many things as I could.
During this time I also developed a Board Game that should go in production this year. That was also a lot of time and a lot of fun.
I also try to spend a lot of time with my wife and my kids, and I can easily stop touching a computer for weeks when I'm in vacation with them.
I exported all posts from my blog to make this new one. Nothing should really change for you except the design and the lack of comments. But for me, I can simply write posts as MarkDown or using F# formatting Literate Programming which is awesome.
I decided in the process to remove all tracking scripts like google analytics to not bother you with cookies.
