Supporting your data model with Slick
This talk introduces Slick, the relational database library by Typesafe/EPFL. We quickly go through a few hands-on benefits compared to SQL strings or ORM. Then we take a step back and look at the bigger picture: How is software affected by its persistent data model and how can Slick support an efficient implementation? In particular, we focus on how limitations of the Scala language lead to data model related boiler plate code and how code generation offers a solution to that.
