Scala Sunday Reads: March 18 #Week 2

Sunday Reads

Happy Sunday everyone. We bring you the second instalment for March, of our suggested ‘Sunday Reads’. As always we share some of our best-loved Scala, Haskell & FP learns.

Scala in the City is taking place on Wednesday the 21st of March at the ThoughtWorks offices. In our first talk we will hear from Andreas Koestler on Type classes, a principled approach. We will be announcing the next two talks shortly. Please sign up early as we have limited spaces available. We also have a YouTube channel with videos of our latest talks, check it out.

We would like to give a big shout out to Alex Nedelcu. He is doing some incredible work on cats-effect. Please check it out here.

Our first read is from Raúl Raja Martínez, CTO & Co-Founder at 47 Degrees. This post is called Typeclasses in FP Architecture.

Our second read is from Matt Halverson, Senior Engineer at Uber. This post is called Queryparser, an Open Source Tool for Parsing and Analyzing SQL.  


Our third read is from James Philips, Lead Scala Developer at Cambridge Analytica. This post is called Typesafe Union-type folding in Scala.

Our fourth read is from Joe Vargas. This post is A Game in Haskell - Dino Rush.

Our fifth read is from Vladimir Samoylov. This post is called Akka cluster on kubernetes. Traps and pitfalls.

We also highly recommend checking out a book from Samuel Halliday called Functional Programming for Mortals with Scalaz.
