Shropshire Devs is a free-to-attend user group which is made possible by our great sponsors Proto Labs as well as our community organisers.
Speakers from both the industry and community are chosen to present on topics requested by you, our attendees. These are usually focused on web development topics.
Free pizza is provided by our sponsors for all events, because what would a developers user group be without pizza?
So you want to get started, putting together Functional code, but you don't have time for the learning curve that comes with F# or Haskell? Or maybe you're fine with them, but the rest of the team isn't ready to follow yet. Whatever the case may be, it's perfectly possible to implement a lot of the amazing features of Functional programming in C#, without the need for any new dependencies, or even any especially complicated code.
In this talk you'll learn about functional programming in C# and up-coming features in C# 8.
Bots are on a comedown from the peak of their hype in 2016 when Satya Nadella proclaimed 'Bots are the new apps'.
The bots we have seen so far have been limited and to be frank, most offer a poor user experience. So you may ask, why bother? I will run the slide rule over the reasons why those original bots failed to live up to their expectations, and what's going on with next generation of bots.
With an increasing amount of log data from software & systems it can be hard to see the 'wood for the trees'. Big data has a risk of being overwhelming in size and harder to manipulate. Metrics offer us a chance to digest and see trends at a higher level.
In this session, you'll learn how features in Elasticsearch has helped Esendex unlock numerical insights in log data & offers advice on finding an efficient combination of both approaches.
