«Don’t call me frontend framework! A quick ride on Akka.Js», Andrea Peruffo
We will start from the very basics and learn how Akka actor model applies properly in business logic, software infrastructure as well as in managing UI. In the end we will take a look at some of the features under development and what we are trying to achieve.
«Fantastic Monads and where to find them»,Jakub Kozłowski
Although Scala's standard library doesn't provide a lot of abstractions for functional programming known from languages like Haskell, there are projects out there which aim to fill that gap - one of them is Cats, a library that provides typeclasses, instances and additional constructs to Free (pun intended) us from the burden of writing the same code over and over again.
«Functional programming techniques in real world microservices», András Papp
Functional programming is very rich in exciting theories and concepts, but for newcomers it can be challenging to apply them in their day to day work. In this presentation I will show a couple of situations from our recent projects where some techniques from the functional programming toolset came in handy. This is a practical talk so expect to see a lot of code from real world projects.
«GERONTOMICS: how Scala & Spark help to cure aging and cancer», Anton Kulaga
Scala helps to crunch numbers to cure ageing and cancer, why it is important to sequence your genome and how you can use Spark to aim CRISPR “missiles” to make genetic changes.
«Hacktime: Environment for training models in Scala», Dmitry Spodarets
In the speech we will talk about environments that help data scientists train their models. We will consider and compare computing resources, popular libraries (Deeplearning4j, ScalaPy and TensorFlow), and will discuss how to set up these environments and automate the training process. We will also talk about Docker and Singularity containers.
