Jon Pretty: Rapture I/O

Rapture I/O


Jon Pretty (@propensive) will be talking about Rapture I/O (, a comprehensive open-source Scala library providing much of the functionality of the and packages with a much more intuitive and extensible Scala API. Rapture I/O takes advantage of Scala's best features to provide a simple and safe interface to common I/O operations.

A particular focus will be Rapture I/O's support for JSON handling, which makes working with dynamically-typed JSON a much more natural experience in the statically-typed Scala world. For more advanced Scala users, Jon will spend some time showing how advanced features like implicits and higher-kinded types have been employed to facilitate this elegant API.


We will, as always, also be heading to the Slaughtered Lamb pub afterwards.

    Last-minute cancel here: too long of a work day to endure any more intellectual tasks. I'm very sorry I had to pull out.
