Adam Rosien: An Introduction to Cats Effect
Cats Effect is a library that makes it easy to write code that effectively uses multiple cores and doesn’t leak resources. This makes building complex applications, such as highly concurrent services, much more productive. This talk will introduce the meaning and role of side-effects and effects, how to encapsulate side-effects in a safer form, and show off the features of the Cats Effect library that provide parallelism, concurrency, resource-safety, and more!
This meeting will, of course, be virtual. It will be recorded, and the recording will be posted to YouTube sometime after the meeting.
NOTE: The Zoom meeting uses the "waiting room" feature. The host (Brian Clapper) will have to admit you to the meeting, so please be patient when you attempt to join. (This policy helps avoid zoom-bombing.)
