Type Providers from the Ground Up
A hands-on session on creating type providers in F#, from a new blank project to a simple but useful strongly typed template provider.
We'll start with generating simple static types, and then work our way up through adding static properties/method, constructors, instance properties/methods and then building the whole thing up into a working example.
Bring your own laptop - you'll need a reasonably recent Visual Studio (2012+) OR a machine with a recent mono and F# compiler install.
