A growing trend in both the theory and practice of programming is the interaction between programming and rich information spaces. From databases to web services to the semantic web to cloud-based data, the need to integrate programming with heterogeneous, connected, richly structured, streaming and evolving information sources is ever-increasing.
No matter what technology we use for accessing data, someone, somewhere needs to somehow specify how to map data from the source to a structure that can be used in the programming language.
With F# 3.0 you now have a tool that massively simplifies information-rich analytical programming. F# 3.0 provides integrated support for F# Information Rich Programming, a new and powerful way of integrating data and services into your programming experience.
This talk would demonstrate what F# 3.0 specifically offers in the area of Information Rich Programming (IRP), but also look at how information-richness makes us reconsider programming language and tooling design more generally, and take a look at the themes that recur in this kind of work.

    Hi Tamizhvendan,

    Can you please respond to reviewers comment? As of now, this looks more of just a programming language demo with no correlation to agile and this conference. 

    If you can show an alignment between the two, then it might be interesting. Otherwise it simply won't make the cut w.r.t to some of the other submitted proposals that you must be seeing on the site. 

    Let us know if you have any other thoughts on this.

      Sorry for the delayed reply.

      As mentioned by you folks the topic revolves around a technology and I couldn't get how to align it with the theme of the conference.

      Any help on this regard would be much appreciated.

    I'd like to second Sachin's comment. I think what would make this more compelling to the prospective audience is if we can show the link between Information Rich Programming and Agile. Can you perhaps add a little information about that?

    Interesting submission. Is 'Agile Lifecycle' the right fit for this? What do you think?
