Happy Sunday everyone. We bring you the fourth instalment for February, of our suggested ‘Sunday Reads’. You know the deal by now, we share some of our best-loved Scala, Haskell & FP learns.

Our very own Scala in the City meet up takes place this Wednesday at the Habito offices. We really hope the forecasted snow doesn’t stop anyone attending as we have some awesome talks lined up covered Haskell, Purescript, Scala & Quill. We have a few more places left so If you haven’t already please sign up to attend.

Our first read is from Tom Harding, Tom is one of the speakers at Scala in the city on Wednesday. Tom writes Haskell & Purescript for Habito. This post is called Dependable Types 1: Full-STλC Development

Our second read is from Flavio Brasil, a Software Engineer at Twitter. Quill-spark, A type-safe Scala API for Spark SQL. If you are interested in Quill, Juliano Alves will be giving a talk at Scala in the city on Wednesday called a Practical Theory of Language-Integrated Query with Quill.

Our third read is from Li Haoyi, an Engineering Lead currently working with Scala, Python and other programming languages. This post is called Easy Parsing with Parser Combinators. If you are interested in Parsing, Bastien Louërat will be giving a talk at Scala in the City on Wednesday called More functions and more types.

Our fourth read is from Oleg Grenrus, a Software Developer at Futurice Oy. This post is called Free Monad and Free Applicative using single Free type

Our fifth is a YouTube video from Martin Odersky, the video is called Plain Functional Programming.

Last week we came across an offer on some awesome tech ebooks for you and thought it was too good not to share. O’Reilly are offering another bundle full of top-quality books. Get titles like Functional Thinking, Clojure Programming, Learning Scala, and Programming Rust. Humble Book Bundle: Functional Programming
