Slick cats – how to make your pets manage your data
Slick is a modern database query and access library for Scala. It allows you to work with stored data almost as if you were using Scala collections while at the same time giving you full control over when a database access happens and which data is transferred. (http://slick.lightbend.com)
Cats is a library which provides abstractions for functional programming in the Scala programming language. The name is a playful shortening of the word category. (https://typelevel.org/cats/)
During this workshop you will be able to get some practical knowledge of how to manage dirty database operations in a clean and elegant approach using functional programming. Workshop is aimed at beginners starting their journey with Scala willing to know how to create elegant persistence layer in their applications. Workshop will consist of a bit of technical introduction followed by series of exercises based on real world problems that occur in typical projects.
