Folding Financial Data with Scala by Greg Turnquist

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!


From Granny White Pike turn on to Maryland Way heading East
Take your first Left onto Arcaro Plaza
Turn in to the first parking lot on the Right
Take an immediate Left and park near the main entrance to the building

Be sure to look for a phone number taped to the door (it's sometimes locked). Call it and we'll come down and let you in.

If the doors aren't locked take the elevator in the lobby to the 4th floor
Head right out of the elevator and take the hallway to the left
We meet in the first room on the left

See you there!

    It was great seeing a nice turnout for an alternately schedule meeting. Like meeting new members of the Java community

    A good way to whet the scala appetite - digging down into just one feature - folding. We could probably absorb 3-7 more scala-related talks.
