= Agenda (GMT time) =
18:00 - 19:30: Talk: Monocle 3: a peek into the future
19:30 - 20:00: Q&A & get-to-gether

= Abstract of the talk =
Optics is a popular topic among library authors; they exist in at least four flavours in Scala: Monocle, Quicklens, Shapeless and Tofu. However, we rarely see optics in real world code bases.
Why is that? Why are optics not popular in Scala?

In this talk, I plan to not only answer this question, but also offer some solutions to the current problems with Monocle API.

This presentation is a longer, more in-depth version of the one I gave last year at Scale by the Bay.
