Techmeetup Glasgow: September 2013

This Wednesday sees the continuation of Techmeetup in Glasgow. Some cracking talks this month :

Luke Dicken: Introducing The International Game Developers Association

With a history spanning over twenty years, and thousands of members around the world, the International Game Developers Association has been a uniting force, bringing together people from all disciplines interested in, or actively pursuing game development. In this talk, Luke Dicken, the first director of the organisation to ever be elected from outside of North America, will explain the mission of the IGDA, why it matters and why it is of relevance to the broader tech sector as well.

Keith Harrison: Why Humans use F#

The talk will show how users with a math background can use F# to build sophisticated solutions. I will cover closures, higher order functions and explain how F# takes advantage of the .NET Framework. 

Thanks to our sponsors Neo, SkyScanner and Glasgow University for making the event possible.

Luke has given some great talks before and always delivers a lively presentation. He can be found on Twitter as @luked or at his site

Not too familiar with F#, so will be interesting to hear what it has to offer.
