Rapture is a collection of libraries for everyday programming tasks like I/O, JSON & XML processing and cryptography, with a focus on beautiful, concise and intuitive code. Rapture packs a lot of power into a single line of code, and Jon will race through fifty of Rapture's smartest one-liners at a rate of one-a-minute, showing you how easy it is to perform everyday file and network I/O and structured data operations, without compromising type safety. All the code in the talk will be easy for beginners to understand, but more advanced developers may also learn some new tricks, so there should be something for everyone!


Jon has been involved in the Scala community for the last ten years, having launched the first commercial and open-source Scala software back in 2005. Since then, he has successfully deployed Scala projects into small, medium and large businesses, and UK government, but is best known these days for his work on Rapture, and more recently Typelevel Scala.
