Talk #1: "Pure Future" by Wiem Zine El Abidine
Implementing responsive and high-performance applications is the most obvious challenge that we face in our programming life. The solution is to perform parallel computations. In this session you will learn about how could you do that using purely functional way.

Talk #2: "Sleeping well in the lion's den with Monix Catnap" by Piotr Gawryś
Concurrency bugs leave you restless? Monix Catnap provides a ton of utilities that will let your worries take a good nap!
Monix Catnap is a rather unknown module of Monix which has a lot of cool features like Local, AsyncQueue and ConcurrentChannel. It aims to provide a support for both purely functional effect types and Future in an equal way whenever it is applicable in a hope to appeal to the entire Scala community!
Frequent contributor to Open Source projects in Scala ecosystem who’s doing his best to make pure FP a little bit more approachable. One of the maintainers of Monix and Kraków Scala User Group organisers.
