  • Blog Post: Benoit Mandelbrot

    I just read that earlier today, Benoît Mandelbrot passed away . Mandelbrot’s most famous discovery, the Mandelbrot fractal , played an important early role in my interest in both programming and mathematics, and I’ve revisited Mandelbrot fractals many times as programming samples for...
  • Blog Post: Twitter OAuth in F#

    I have a few F# demos which use the Twitter APIs as simple examples of accessing online data interactively and working with it in F#.    Recently, Twitter moved to require OAuth for accessing Twitter APIs on behalf of a user.  Below is the F# code I wrote to integrate OAuth, which...

  • Blog Post: ICFP Programming Contest 2009

    This year’s ICFP Programming Contest starts today. We’ve got a team participating, any other F# teams out there? Last year, I posted an F# implementation of the 2006 ICFP contest problem , which was an amazing and complex set of puzzles inside a custom virtual machine. Here’s a Silverlight...

  • Blog Post: Standard Deviation and Event-based Programming

    A couple weeks ago, I had the opportunity to do a really fun presentation on F# at the .NET Meetup in New York.

The result was more of a developer focus for last week...
  • Blog Post: Huffman Coding with F#

    I recall my sense of awe when I first wrote a simple compression application using Huffman Coding a few years ago for a school assignment. Compression is one of those things that just kind of feels like magic - you get to take something, and make it smaller without losing any information! It's done so...
