Eleven Little Life-enhancing Libraries for Scala

YOW! Lambda Jam 2019

A microlibrary should do one thing and do it well. It's a recipe for composability. This talk will be a rapid-fire tour de force of eleven Propensive microlibraries, each one given exactly two minutes to demonstrate its uniqueness and usefulness for everyday tasks. You will see new ways to: execute system processes, work with CSV, calculate digests, use annotations, pattern match on strings, abstract over monads, work with lenses, diff ADTs, generate valid HTML, statically-check interpolated strings and compose async graphs. Each one comes with a firm focus on typesafety, elegant syntax and a humorously magniloquent name!
