We've kept you waiting long enough!
Last week, Scala in the City at YOOX NET-A-PORTER was a blast and we've all been ready and waiting to catch up on the videos so here they are. From Optics from the ground up to how YOOX NET-A-PORTER came to use Scala, there was a lot of knowledge to learn so we hope everyone who came along went away with a lot of insight.
Thank you again to YOOX NET-A-PORTER and the team for welcoming us along and giving us multiple enjoyable talks. Also a massive thanks to Nicolas Rinaudo for giving his time to come along from Paris exclusively for Scala in the City!
Let's get into the talks...
Scala in the City at YOOX NET-A-PORTER
Learning How to Learn Scala by Iulia Dirleci and Sarabjit Kaur
OMS Scala (R)evolution by Francesco NolanoBuilding reliable system is hard and Scala turns out to be the perfect fit for this as it provides a unique set of features allowing you to adopt both Object Oriented and Functional programming style.
From Futures to Cats Effect by Darius JokilehtoYou've picked up Scala. You get Futures. But you hear Futures are the past, and the community is talking about other non-blocking libraries. This talk will focus on one of the alternatives, cats effect - why you might want to use it instead of Futures, and some common use cases.
Optics from the Ground Up by Nicolas Rinaudo
Optics are a part of FP that have long frightened me - they sound so intellectual and hard and out of reach! Turns out though, once you actually sit down and study them, optics are surprisingly simple. The purpose of this talk is not to make anyone an optics expert, but to demystify them and show people that they’re as useful as they’re easy to grasp.
