As professional software engineers, sometimes messy details of the real world stand in the way of us delivering principled software. Flaky connections, unreliable services, and bulletproof job scheduling in the presence of non-determinism and failure all tricky problems that discourage us from writing principled software. Yet sometimes the shortcuts we take to solve these problems result in downtime for the business and sleepless nights for us.
In this brand-new presentation, created exclusively for Scala in the City, John A. De Goes will show how functional programming can help bring order to even the most chaotic systems. Using ZIO, a new zero-dependency Scala library for building massively scalable asynchronous and concurrent applications, John will demonstrate how functional programming leverages reified effects and algebras to solve the trickiest of reliability and scheduling problems in a principled, composable, flexible way.
Join John for an evening of fun and functional programming as you explore fresh ways of thinking about reliability and scheduling, and come out of the talk with valuable skills for using ZIO to solve the everyday problems you encounter at work.
