FP can do CRUD too
* Building a Full Stack Web App with Scala and Play Framework
Sometimes when I talk about Functional Programming I get caught up in interesting but esoteric topics. Monads, combinators, and functors are awesome. Debating the relative values of type systems is interesting. But sometimes I just want to build a web app that does some basic CRUD. Using Scala and the Play Framework, this talk explores building a web application from the front-end to back-end using Scala and functional techniques.
