Together with Ziverge Inc., we’re more than happy to invite you to the first ZIO Hackathon 2020 after the official launch of the 1.0 version that took place on August 4, 2020. The whole ZIO community was waiting for this moment for almost three years, but here we are!

During the ZIO Hackathon 2020, you will be able to attend talks on ZIO projects straight from ZIO open source contributors, as well as get advice on all your ZIO challenges like bugs and new feature ideas.

About ZIO Hackathon 2020

Date: 20 – 21 November 2020
Location: Online – Zoom/Discord/Github

Schedule

  • Friday, November 20st: Introductory talk – 8 pm (GMT+1)
  • Saturday, November 21st: ZIO Hackathon – Start: 10 am (GMT+1)

Hands-on open-source coding, guided by expert mentors – is, of course, the main idea of the ZIO Hackathon 2020. However, attendees can join breakout sessions to learn about specific aspects of ZIO (ZIO core, fibers, STM, execution traces, fiber dumps, ZIO test, ZIO config, etc.), and team leaders will help different groups work on core issues in ZIO, the ZIO ecosystem, and other related libraries in the functional Scala ecosystem.

Additionally, Anyone who attends the ZIO Hackathon and merges a contribution to any official ZIO project during the event will get a free ZIO T-shirt (no shipping limitations) and a 10% discount to the Functional Scala 2020 Conference.

About ZIO

ZIO is a zero-dependency Scala library for asynchronous and concurrent programming. Powered by scalable, non-blocking fibers that never waste or leak resources, ZIO lets you build scalable, resilient, and reactive applications that meet the needs of your business.

After the big launch, it already has more than half a million downloads in a month. ZIO is used by firms like Netflix, DHL, Evolution Gaming, and many others.

The event was brought to you by Ziverge Inc. – the commercial developer of the ZIO library and us, Scalac. Scalac is a development, and consulting company, and contributor in multiple projects in the ZIO ecosystem. Find out more about Scalac.

Mastering Modularity in ZIO with Zlayer Ebook

Writing modular applications is without a doubt very important in software engineering.  It allows us to build software no matter the complexity involved. And composability has been one of the core principles of ZIO from the very beginning.

In this e-book you will learn:

  • What is the new module structure suggested by ZIO
  • How to reorganize the ZIO application around ZLayers
  • ZIO new data types: ZLayer and Has
  • ZLayer type aliases
  • How to create and combine ZLayers, with a horizontal and vertical composition
  • How to reorganize ZIO tests and mocks around ZLayers
