As a highly successful sports betting consultancy, Starlizard has devoted millions of hours to take our understanding of football into a completely different league. We use our understanding of the game and market know-how to provide our clients with a small edge over the market to generate long term winning returns.
Starlizard Integrity Services provides sports integrity stakeholders (governing bodies, national associations, leagues and others) with specialist analytical assessments of both betting markets and on-pitch activity, in order to detect and advise on anomalies and integrity concerns.
Starlizard is very proud to invest a lot of time and emotional energy in its staff. There is a canteen serving high quality, healthy food every day of the year. There is an onsite gym and a mezzanine area with pool tables, dart boards and games. We regularly have company-wide, departmental and charity events that bring an extra social dimension to our working lives.
Our technology teams are product focused and highly agile. We take pride in our engineering focused culture and high trust environment giving our cross-functional teams freedom to experiment, innovate and solve problems in the most optimal way. We have a large team of exceptional engineers responsible not only for development but for the environments and testing. We firmly believe in upholding and continuously improving an engineering culture where the path to delivering value is frictionless and as enjoyable for developers as possible.
The work and technologies are exciting but most importantly the people working at Starlizard are highly knowledgeable, friendly and supportive. The combination of people, technology and challenging problems makes a potent combination and a great place to work.

Keynote: The Bottom of the Iceberg: Enabling Data Science Research with F#
Featuring Evelina Gabasova
When you hear terms like data science and artificial intelligence, you probably imagine fitting fancy mathematical models to data. Well, this is only the tip of the metaphorical iceberg of data science. In practice, it is also the part that ultimately amounts to calling a one-line function from...f# artificial-intelligence data-science machine-learning
Dungeons, Dragons and Functions
Featuring Mathias Brandewinder
Dungeons & Dragons, or D&D, is the grand-daddy of all role-playing games. While playing D&D is great fun, the rules are a bit daunting for the beginner. The basic rulebook, the PHB, clocks in at a solid 300 pages, and can be extended with multiple additional rule sets. This should...domain-modeling gaming f# functional-programming
Reinventing MVC pattern for Web Programming with F#
Featuring Krzysztof Cieślak
The MVC pattern has been one of the most important architectural patterns for server-side web development - it has been implemented and popularized by frameworks like Ruby On Rail or ASP.NET MVC. However, this pattern was traditionally coupled with object-oriented programming. In the talk,...f# mvc-pattern functional-programming

Lightning Talk: Let’s talk about Types
Featuring Rumyana Neykova
Rumyana will give a (very) brief history of types and will discuss some (new and not that new) type systems, such as session types (types for distributed programs), refinement types (types with predicates). In this talk, she will challenge you to think how (and why) you can stretch the notion of...sessiontypes refinementtypes distributed-system compiler types f# functional-programming
Functions as Interfaces: Extend Everything!
Featuring Erik Novales
In a functional world, you can often dispense with explicit interface definitions, because a function's inputs and outputs are an implicit interface. Combining this idea with F#'s automatic generalization gives you a powerful tool for easily bolting on useful features, anywhere in your...f# resiliency composability functional-programming
Taming Types in the Cloud
Featuring Isaac Abraham
Working with cloud-based data sources often means giving up some of the benefits we're used to when working with conventional relational data stores such as schemas and local access.
This talk will focus on how you can make use of F#’s type system in tandem with distant data sources in order...cloud f# type-systems type-providers bigdata data azure functional-programming
Build Cross-Platform Mobile Apps Using Fabulous
Featuring Jim Bennett
In recent years there has been a shift in the way websites and mobile apps are being built - moving to architectures with immutable models and virtual UIs based on the MVU (model-view-update) pattern. This has led to great new frameworks like ELM and React for web, and ReactNative for mobile.f# mvu cross-platform mobile
