Recording and Slides for F# DSLs talk at F# |> Bristol

Here’s the recorded live stream of the F# DSLs session I did at the F# |> Bristol user group last night.

(apologies for the first few mins where I forgot to share my screen to the Hangout…)

and here’s the slides to go with the talk:

Slides for F# DSL talk at LambdaDays

Hi, thanks to everyone who turned up to my talk at LambdaDays this afternoon, here are the slides.


You can find the source code for the projects I discussed below:

DynamoDB.SQL : source code & nuget package

SimpleWorkflow.Extensions : source code & nuget package

CloudWatch.Selector : source code & nuget package & CLI tool (chocolatey)

New releases – DynamoDB.SQL and Darkseid

Hi, just a quick update on two of my libraries aimed at making AWS easier to work with from .Net.



DynamoDB.SQL is a SQL-like external DSL for querying & scanning data in Amazon DynamoDB. Version 3.0.0 has been released, which moves away from the monolithic .Net AWSSDK (v2.x.x), and onto the DynamoDB specific package.

You can continue to use v2.x packages for DynamoDB.SQL, I’ll apply any bug fixes to both v2.x and v3.x packages. However, any new features in the future – such as support for the mid-level Table abstractions in the AWSSDK – will be added to v3.x only.

Over the coming weeks and months, I’ll continue the effort to migrate my fleet of AWS-related tools and libraries to the service-specific packages.



Darkseid is a producer library for Amazon Kinesis, it works hand-in-hand with ReactoKinesix which provides the consumer side of the story.

Courtesy of Dustin’s PR, version 0.3.0 has been released which adds synchronous methods for pushing events to Kinesis (so that services that aren’t ready to go async all the way can still integrate with Kinesis using Darkseid).


That’s it, folks, hope you all had a nice weekend. If you haven’t seen Deadpool yet, you should, it is amazing
