In North Carolina, stock car racing borders on obsession – with local track racing rivaling high school football as a popular Friday night family activity. Different local tracks have different classes of cars and Jamie's son ran in the intro division of 5/8 size car at three local speedways in 2017.

In this talk, Jamie will share with you:

  • A brief introduction to oval track racing - and why it is much more than "go fast and turn left"
  • How they used a Raspberry PI to help capture some of the telemetry on the car
  • How they used F# to analyze the data to help him go faster

Jamie Dixon

Jamie Dixon has been writing code for as long as he can remember and has been getting paid to do it since 1995. He was using C# and JavaScript almost exclusively until discovering F# and now combines all three languages for the problem at hand. He has a passion for discovering overlooked gems in data sets and merging software engineering techniques to scientific computing. When he codes for fun, he spends his time using the .NET Micro framework with Netduinos, Raspberry Pi2s, and the Kinect.
