Scala: Building a RESTful API with Slick and Spray – by Israel Tilk
Using Slick’s Functional Relational Mapping(FRM) to access a data store and build immutable objects, and exposing that data via a Spray REST API.
Israel Tilk has been coding for 15 years and currently works for Pinnacle Solutions Group. He spent the last year coding Scala for IHearMedia. His adventures in functional programming started back in 2012 when he took the coursera course on Scala. Like most of us he is still trying to figure out monads.
“Embedded Haskell, part 1: EDSLs & Metaprogramming”
by Chris Hodapp
Haskell, along with most other functional languages, isn’t commonly seen from the perspective of embedded systems, but its use here is well-established. I will briefly discuss some current ways that Haskell is used in embedded systems, and I will demonstrate specific libraries and software that I use at my day job for this purpose. I will start with live-coding in one such system, Atom (http://hackage.haskell.org/package/atom
), and if time permits, progress to another much more comprehensive system, Ivory (http://ivorylang.org/
Ben Kyrlach will be talking on
We have a special guest and location for this weeks meeting.
Farmlogs https://farmlogs.com/ a midwest Clojure startup will be presenting.
FarmLogs helps farmers use data about their fields to grow row crops more profitably. This talk provides a brief intro to the national data sets we provide, including soil quality, crop history, and vegetative health. We’ll also dig into the architecture and Clojure code we use to deliver field level data layers on demand, using tools such as PostGIS, RabbitMQ, and custom Clojure libraries.
The meeting will be held at Top Gun/Mason Tech Center and pizza will be provided. Come a bit early for pizza and conversation.
