This month you will have to get your hands dirty again! Luka Jacobowitz (https://twitter.com/LukaJacobowitz) and Benedikt Ritter (https://twitter.com/BenediktRitter) will host a hands-on session about building functional REST services with Http4s and doobie. We will do a short introduction and then we code together.
Http4s (https://github.com/http4s/http4s) is a minimal, idiomatic Scala interface for HTTP services.
doobie (https://github.com/tpolecat/doobie) is a pure functional JDBC layer for Scala.
Please bring a laptop with a working Scala development environment. If you don't have a working Scala environment, check out our intro to Scala: https://github.com/scaladus/scala-kickstart
