ZIO 1.0 is here! Join ZIO Hackathon by Scalac & Ziverge

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.

Functional World Meetup

Exploring ZIO Prelude: The game-changer for type classes in Scala

Join us on Thursday, August 20 at 6.00 PM, GMT+2

About the talk

On this talk, we are going to explore how ZIO Prelude provides us an accessible and fun way of writing pure, generic, and composable code in Scala, without needing to appeal to the traditional Functor hierarchy.

More specifically, we’ll explore these uses cases:

  • Combining data structures
  • Traversing data structures
  • Validating data structures
  • And… working with the brand-new ZPure!

About Jorge Vasquez

Software developer focused on the backend. He had the chance to work with several technologies and programming languages across different industries, such as Telco, AdTech, and Online Education. 

He’s always looking to improve his skills, finding new and better ways to solve business problems. He loves functional programming, and he’s convinced it can help to make better software. Also, he’s excited about new libraries like ZIO that are making Scala FP more accessible to developers. 

Author of the “Mastering modularity in ZIO with Zlayer” ebook mentioned below.

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

Tapir vs Endpoints4s – The battle of the endpoints definition!

In this article, we compare Tapir with endpoints4s. We highlight the differences by providing examples and explanations for the most common features you would like to have in your REST API. Both libraries only require you to describe the communication protocol in Scala. Once the communication protocol is written, you need to wire it with a specific HTTP Server (such as Akka HTTP) and/or body parsing (e.g. Circe). In the end, the library produces clients, documentation, and servers for you with implementations of your choices.

Do Scala with Scalac – 7 success stories to follow

From challenges to achieving goals - building a complex solution takes time and effort in order to seize all opportunities and deliver a high-quality product. Thinking about all the aspects you have to handle when developing software or making changes to existing ones can be a little overwhelming. Especially when a solution that used to work doesn’t fit your needs anymore and bottlenecks give you sleepless nights. Picking the right partner to help you manage this is a hard nut to crack. Maybe it’s high time to ask other companies about their own experience and recommendations?
