  • Blog Post: F#: Starting anew, why F# and not FORTRAN

    Why FORTRAN and not F#?  FORTRAN works well, has a strong history and none of that nasty object oriented nonsense. F# works well, based on OCAML, and supports object oriented nonsense How about F# and FORTRAN?  Can F# use FORTRAN?  Alfred Thompson makes a good point about creating a parallel...
  • Blog Post: F#: Using the Interactive Panel in VS 2010 Part 1

    Use the Interactive Panel in VS 2010 to learn how to use F#.  I have not included the code used in my examples, my guidance to you is to visit: F# 1.9.6.16 Draft Language Specification , start off with: “Making Data Simple” use the interactive panel to test the examples.  Then work through...
  • Blog Post: Towards programming languages for genetic engineering of living cells

    Ok, still goofing off from my F# articles, but for now, one of my friends has a very bad cancer (not that any of them are good) called peritoneal carcinomatosis (PC), or PMP.  On my other blog about Silverlight Games , I am discussing how to make a serious game that would help people understand...
  • Blog Post: Could you organize a collaborative research project?

    Using free stuff from Microsoft, could you organize a research project that was collaborative and be able to reach out all over the world for data and resources?  Currently I have a relative that has PMP, an extremely rare type of cancer, about 300 cases in the year occur in the US, maybe 6,000...

    I just got back from the Foundation of Digital Games (FDG) Disney Cruise, and it WAS GREAT! I had great conversations with some of the best game researchers and professors on the planet, and we all couldn’t use our cell phones or do email without paying a bunch of money. ACM held the conference and the...

    Quiz answers Is the “let” keyword only used for values? No, the “let” keyword is used for values and functions Is the “let” keyword only used for functions? No, functions and values are treated the same way in F# If I write the line of code: let TimeBump = 1.0<ft>*3.0<m>, will I get a context...
  • Blog Post: WTF#: Changing the curriculum on programming for scientists and engineers

    Changing the curriculum for Physics Majors and Engineers, as we can see, the process to prepare people who might be engineers and scientists (except for the computer scientists) need to have some modifications. First of all, the process of training engineers and scientists appears to be modified, the...
  • Blog Post: WTF: Orbital Mechanics/Celestial Mechanics, Newton and Kepler’s Laws

    Apparently this cartoon was all to true with respect to the Mars Climate Orbiter. However, for some reason I am certain that there were no women wearing sexy pantsuits on the navigator team for the MCO. If I am wrong leave a comment. Hi ho: Well like Tim Buxton said at the Mix09 keynote today, the transition...
