It's Sunday Reads time again! 

We hope you're ready for another instalment of the latest Scala, Functional Programming and Haskell learns as we've pulled together all our favourites to keep you up to date with the tech world. So get comfy and get stuck in, happy reading. 

Don't forget it's the last Scala in the City of 2018! So if you haven't had a chance to make it along to any this year try and come along to this one, not only are they a great place to learn from experienced Community contributors but it's great to meet others who are just as passionate about Functional Programming.

This month we are ecstatic that Scala in the City will be hosted by Monzo which, by the way, has been named as the number one tech company in the UK by LinkedIn so we can't wait to find out a bit more about this exciting brand. 

Our speakers line up is also one to celebrate with Ben Simpson, Senior Software Engineer at Elliptic on 'Fighting CryptoCurrency Crime with Scala' followed by Paul Roberts, Scala Developer at The Guardian and last but certainly not least the wonderful duo, Lindsey Dew, Data Engineer at Deliveroo and Omnia Ibrahim, Data Engineer at Deliveroo on Introduction to Kafka Streaming.

Don't miss out, help us see out 2018 with a bang!
