Topics: "Optics in Haskell" and "Observables - hot or not?"

New place!
New Scalac's office - Czesława Miłosza 9/9, Gdańsk

6pm - 6:45 pm "Optics in Haskell"

We will look what "optics" means and try to define different basic kinds of optics. We will examine different ways how to define a lens like "van Laarhoven" encoding as well as profunctor optics.

Speaker: Paweł Sączawa (Scalac)

Paweł is always curious how things work and why they were designed this way. FP apprentice, Haskell enthusiast. He is currently working professionally in Scala for Scalac.

6:45pm - 7pm --> Networking pizza! As always you can expect nice pizza and awesome people to talk to :)

7pm - 7:45pm "Observables - hot or not?"

Observables are yet another way to handle asynchronicity in JS.
You can think of them as Promises on steroids but there’s more to them than just that.
You can think of them as arrays whose items arrive asynchronously over time.
What can you do next with them? Let’s find out.

What you’ll learn:
• What observables are
• Different types of Observables
• Where you can use them and how to benefit from it
Level: Intermediate
