Reactive database access or how to become a friend with slick unicorns

March 2, 2017

The goal of the presentation is to have somewhat of an introduction to Slick 3.x. Except covering basics however we will delve further and will try to see what are the common problems developers stumble upon when transitioning to Slick 3. By doing so we will also cover Unicorn – a neat library to help you solve some common initial problem and misconceptions you may have starting with Slick 3.x.

Presentation is to be pragmatic, so after going through it (together with code samples) you should be able to start using it in your project with no problems. We will rather focus on how basics of Slick work and how you can build relevant queries / operations / patterns rather than Slick internals.
