Tomorrow the NYC F# meetup group will hear from Jack Pappas. (Note: I think there is a waiting list for this event, but hopefully a larger room can be organized? Or perhaps a repeat of the event?)

High Performance F#, in .NET and on the GPU with Jack Pappas, Tuesday, November 29, 2011, 6:30 PM

Microsoft Offices, 6th floor, 1290 Avenue of the Americas, New York, NY (map)

I'll discuss the benefits of using F# to build large .NET-based applications, and show how you can leverage F# language features to build robust, high-performance code. I'll follow this with some general background on parallel and GPU computing, then preview some upcoming features of GPU .NET – including support for F#.

Jack Pappas is CEO and Co-Founder of TidePowerd (, a company building tools for numerical software development. Jack has a background in numerical analysis and optimization and he primarily develops in F# and C#.
