Join us to learn the basics of folding data with Scala. People often duck when they run into blog entries written about folding, because other terms tend to clutter these writings like: endofunctors, applicatives, category theory, monads & monoids, and other functional lingo that is confusing as all get out.
Forget about it! We will explore the basics of folding without ANY of that other goo! We will look at some real simple financial data you can process on your calculator, and see how folding makes it easy to digest 'em using Scala.
Free food and drink, courtesy of Vaco, starts at 6. Lightning talks welcome over food, with the main presentation starting at 6:30.
As always, our gratitude to Vaco for being a great sponsor!

Head right out of the elevator and take the hallway to the left
