Learn to develop simple financial applications with F#, like the Twitter bot featured in this course.
- [Instructor] Hi, I'm Kit Eason and welcome to Writer Financial Application in F#. Let's start by covering the basics of the F# language and how to create a visual F# application in Visual Studio. Then we'll look at the example project I've selected for this course, a Twitter-bot which can read and interpret incoming tweets and reply with charts of stock prices for specified stocks and date ranges. To implement the bot you'll begin by learning how to develop a simple parser using test-driven development. Then you'll do some straightforward data analytics using some of the collection functions built into the F# language.
And from there we'll use the R package ggplot2 to render a beautiful chart of the stock price data. With all the basics in place it'll be time to call the Twitter API using the BoxKite NuGet package and integrate the other components into a working bot. Finally, we'll deploy the bot to a data science VM on ACEA. Now let's get started with Writer Financial Application in F#.
