Type Classes, Macro's
@echojc will take us on a tour of Scala typeclasses - what they are and how they can be used. We'll explore the power and flexibility of how they can make you code cleaner and type-safe. We'll run through https://github.com/echojc/simqle an experimental jdbc wrapper
Akka Reactive Streams
@kalmanb will take us through a run down on the new reactive stream impl in Akka
"Akka Streams provides a way to express and run a chain of asynchronous processing steps acting on a sequence of elements. Every step is processed by one actor to support parallelism. The user describes the “what” instead of the “how”, i.e. things like batching, buffering, thread-safety are handled behind the scenes."
