Tuesday, 12th December at CodeNode, London

This meetup was organised by London Scala Users Group in December 2017


The Future of Decoding in Circe

While this new approach will be included in the core Circe module in 1.0, it's available now as a separate dependency. This talk will begin with a high-level overview of the motivations for the change, but the focus will be a hands-on exploration of the capabilities of the new approach.

Travis Brown

Travis Brown currently writes Scala for Stripe, maintains several open source Scala libraries (including Circe and iteratee.io), and contributes to many others (for example Finch, Cats, and Shapeless).

Compiling like a Boss!

What can we do? It’s paramount we gain greater insight into the tools and libraries we use. There are also established (anti-)patterns that you should know about, if you fancy to keep compilation times to a minimum. And why not utilizing all cores when compiling? The stock Scala compiler can’t do it, but Triplequote Hydra is here to change that. Sit tight and let’s cut down on compilation time!

Iulian Dragos

Iulian Dragoș dreams about a world where the Scala programming language is the default choice for new projects. He learned Scala by writing the compiler backend for it during his PhD at EPFL, back in 2004, and he was the first employee of Lightbend (formerly Typesafe). At Lightbend he helped the company grow from 5 to 85 employees, playing the role of engineer, technical lead, consultant, trainer or sales engineer. Iulian is a frequent speaker at conferences and actively contributing to several open-source projects.

Mirco Dotta

Co-founder of a stealth mode startup aiming at revolutionising Scala developers' life. Mirco has 10+ year experience with Scala, and also has extensive knowledge on Akka, Lagom, Playframework, and Sbt. Before founding his own company, he worked at Lightbend (formerly known as Typesafe), where he wore different hats: from engineering, to consulting, and (fun fact) even sales! He is a certified Lightbend trainer for Akka, Playframework, and Scala. He loves meeting people and sharing experiences, so don't hesitate to say hi when you see him. In his freetime, he plays chess and studies wine - both theory and practice! :)
