Functional patterns for scala beginners

A session at Devoxx UK 2015

Friday 19th June, 2015

9:00am to 9:50am (GMT)

Scala, by being both Functional and Object-Oriented is easy to get started with, especially for java developpers. However, to get the most of the language, you have to embrace its functional nature.

In this session, I'll show you how to start using scala's functional nature by presenting patterns originated in the functional world:

Algebraic Data Types for data modelling
Typeclasses for extensible abstractions
Error handling in a composable fashion with Either and Validation
Segregation between logic and effects for easier testing
Property based testing
