The Scalar Conference began this morning and there has been a variety of great talks such as the one from John A. De Goes below. If you're there then we hope you're having a great time but if not then stay posted as we will continue to keep you up to date with all we can.

In this presentation, John A. De Goes looks at several concurrency and scalability problems similar to the ones all programmers have to face, and shows how purely functional solutions written using Scalaz 8 are shorter, faster, easier to test, and easier to understand than competing solutions written using Akka actors. Discover how functional programming can be your secret superpower when it comes to quickly building bullet-proof business applications!
