Rapture I/O

Jon Pretty (@propensive) will be talking about Rapture I/O ( (, a comprehensive open-source Scala library providing much of the functionality of the ( and ( packages with a much more intuitive and extensible Scala API. Rapture I/O takes advantage of Scala's best features to provide a simple and safe interface to common I/O operations.

A particular focus will be Rapture I/O's support for JSON handling, which makes working with dynamically-typed JSON a much more natural experience in the statically-typed Scala world. For more advanced Scala users, Jon will spend some time showing how advanced features like implicits and higher-kinded types have been employed to facilitate this elegant API.

We will, as always, also be heading to the Slaughtered Lamb ( pub afterwards.
