Signify's Sunday Reads - 26th July Week #4


'The more you read the more things you will know. The more that you learn the more places you will go!' - Dr. Seuss

Welcome back to another Signify Sunday Reads; the one place where we bring you all of the latest in the tech and programming world. 

First up, we have part two in a series from Bilal Fazlani, he describes it as a quick guide to get started with Akka actors with scala for beginners and explores the Scala basics before moving on to ask pattern. This post is called; Actors using Scala & Akka — Part 2 : AskPattern and SpawnProtocol

Another great post which is also made with beginners in mind is A Beginner’s Guide to Scala 3.0 a five-minute post, it explores what changes you can expect from Dotty, with lots of code examples and some slides from Scala Days. The article was written by Manish Mishra.  

Next up we have something a little bit different and less specific, Three Dimensions of Complexity in Localization Businesses Fail to Address by Dailbor S. The article looks at three main points (three dimensions); from small to large teams, from few to many languages and from few to many projects. 

Then we have a classic ZIO post; Mocking endpoints with ZIO sttp this article has lots of code examples and the conclusion says 'we saw how we can use sttp together with zio using the ZLayer approach, and we have shown how to unit test the http client without having to spin any server, by just providing a properly setup SttpClient.'

Next, we have Overriding Inheritance in New Types Using Omit and Keyof in Typescript by ThankGod Ukachukwu he runs through DSO, 'The Famous Type' and Omit. 

And last but not least we will finish on nothing less than a Scala bog, from Occasionally consistent, Railway Oriented Programming in Scala this one is a bit of a longer post, it looks at translating F# to Scala and error handling.
