We only covered Chapter 4 last time, so it's time for the exercises from Chapter 5 of Functional Programming in Scala by Paul Chiusano and Rúnar Bjarnason. (The ebook is available from Manning.)
Preparation: Please read chapter 5 beforehand. For better preparation, attempt the exercises.
Clone the GitHub repo (uses Java 7).
Format: Dan will present a small amount of material as an overview. Participants will be divided into multiple groups that will collaboratively solve the exercises. Then the groups will present their solutions. (The format is an experiment. Your input is welcome.)
