Cats Effect: The IO Monad for Scala by Gabriel Volpe


How familiar are you with Cats Effect?

If you're looking to expand your knowledge, then check out this talk by FP Software Engineer, Gabriel Volpe at ScalaIO France and learn how to deal with side effects in a pure functional way!


Since the first introduction of Cats Effect ( many things have changed taking its design and performance to a whole new level. 
Come join me and learn how to deal with side effects in a pure functional way while abstracting over the effect type and taking composition to the next level. We will review the most important features such as synchronous and asynchronous computations, error handling, safe resource management, concurrency, parallelism and cancellation starting by reviewing the basic concepts.
This talk was given by Gabriel Volpe at ScalaIO FR 2019.
