We promote scala and related technologies in the greater Zurich area. Join us for a chat, a brainstorming session, a conference; to socialize, learn from each other, or simply have fun with scala! The group is heterogeneous, anyone from novice to expert are welcome.
"doobie is a pure functional JDBC layer for Scala."
I'll give an introduction to the library doobie, an interface to JDBC, based on Scalaz. doobie allows us to execute queries in a pure functional way - without worrying about mutable datastructures, connection pools or closing connections.
See https://github.com/tpolecat/doobie for more info!
This will be a partially hands-on session, where I'll be talking about how exactly implicits are found and constructed. Afterwards, there will be a few "implicit not found" scenarios you might encounter.
