Episode 26

Shapes
I will be discussing the different shapes data structures can have. We look at using these shapes to write generic code to work on any shaped data structure. We look at how we can apply these ideas to solve problems in a generic way, such as querying a database, without resorting to reflection.

Codensity
Using Codensity to improve asymptotic complexity in Scala. A Scala demonstration of the techniques from Janis Voigtländer's paper.

Hacking with Argonaut
This is a hands-on introduction to Argonaut, a functional JSON library in Scala. We will introduce the core concepts of Argonaut, explore the many APIs, and have some fun coding up an example. There will be an (optional) opportunity to join in the coding if you bring your own laptop along.

    Hi Jed, All

    Just thought of asking if it is possible to have a video recording of the sessions as myself and perhaps some of you out there are not able to visit meet ups sometimes due to some commitments.

    My family recently grew by 1 :) So it is hard to get permission from my wife to get out for a whole evening... And I will be likely relocating to Melbourne which is another reason I would really appreciate if there was a session recorded. Missing meetups is sad... :(

    Thanks,
    Ev

      Hi Evgeniy, we'd love to have videos available, unfortunately we have neither the equipment or the time to make it happen. If we can work out a way we'll certainly do so though.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
