This week's recommended Scala Sunday Reads

Sunday Reads

A plethora of topics are being discussed around scala every single day which is becoming increasingly challenging to pick out a handful for our recommended ‘Sunday Reads’. This week we give you four more of our favourite scala articles and one talk to have you armed with fresh knowledge ready to kick start your working week. We would like to say these are ‘easy’ Sunday reads but we would be lying! However, they are extremely informative and will put you in good stead for your impending work week, and we’ve kind-heartedly(!) thrown in a youtube video to reduce your reading time. 

Kris Nuttycombe was one of many highlights at Scala World as he described data with just types in scala. Kris covered REAL issues that every developer deals with. Here’s the library being shown.

The case against annotations by Adam Warski is a controversial piece to some, but fantastic read which challenges our heavy reliance on annotations.

Software Engineering is different from Programming by Samer Buna – although they are frequently used interchangeably, this piece highlights why all software engineers can program, but not all programmers can engineer software.

This really fun, impacting talk on Typelevel Programming 101: The Subspace of Scale by Joe Barnes, aims to narrow the gap between haves and have-nots of typelevel programming by teaching some basics of type manipulation in Scala.

Is Javascript compatible with machine learning platforms? This article certainly thinks so and shows you can train your first Linear Regression Model in javascript.

We hope these have enhanced your Sunday and genuinely should improve the developer experience substantially.
