Talks

# “Golang from Scala developer’s perspective” by Svetlana Bozhko (https://twitter.com/sbozhko)

Golang is becoming more and more popular. Most likely many of you have heard of its upgraded garbage collector and possibilities to work with lightweight threads – goroutines. Obviously, Golang is quite a good choice for server-side software oriented on a huge load. As Scala backend developer, I am a big fan of functional programming and actor model. Golang seems very promising, but from the first glance, its a totally imperative language. In my speech I’m going to tell about my experiments with Golang and attempt to use it as a functional language.

# “A look through the lens” by Alex Gryzlov (https://twitter.com/clayrat)

What is bidirectional programming? Are lenses coalgebras or profunctors? Is any of this mumbo-jumbo remotely useful? Let’s try to figure out together! 🐮
