AMEE in Excel

The AMEEConnect API gives access to a vast amount of climate related data. It also exposes standardise methodologies and to perform calculations based on that data.

As part of the London Green Hackathon I created the AMEE-in-Excel addin to tightly integrate this data and calculations into Excel.

So, if Excel is your preferred way to work with climate data, then this should be in your toolkit.

All code is open source and hosted at . Pull-requests are welcome!

UPDATE
Hurrah! AMEE in Excel won the behaviour change prize:

We believe over 80% of the sustainability field currently use spreadsheets. As a process, this is broken, not scalable and inaccurate. AMEE in Excel Integrates spreadsheets with web-services, to create a behaviour change that could address this issue and bring more credibility to the market.

So, if you want to collaborate on some Award Winning Software :), send in those pull requests


Functional programming in Javascript and F#

During June 2011 I presented a session at the SPA2011 conference in London, UK.

My session was a hands on introduction to functional programming techniques with code samples in Javascript and F#. The focus on the session was to get peopling thinking about first class functions; and the techniques they enable to simplify and increase readability of code when solving certain classes of problems.

The code samples can be found at:

An online/executable version of the Javascript code is at http://functional-javascript.davidlaing.com.

Judging by the feedback I received, the session went very well. People seemed to like the hands-on format of the session; and just being left alone for a while to learn something at their own pace.
