Scala Days Chicago

47 Degrees is proud to be a returning gold sponsor of Scala Days in Chicago!

Join us from Wednesday, April 19th through Friday, April 21st at the Swissôtel Chicago for one of the premier conferences for those interested in the Scala language. The event brings together developers from all over the world to share their expertise and new ideas creating applications using Scala, and related technologies like Akka and Play Framework.

47 Degrees will also have a booth at the event, so make sure to stop by and talk Scala with us and score a free t-shirt (while supplies last). If you would like to schedule a meeting with us in advance, get in touch


Andy Scott Scala Days

Andy Scott will be presenting on Friday, April 21st at 3:40 PM:

Class up your Config:

Configuring production applications is a conceptually simple task that sometimes winds up being a lot of work. It shouldn’t be this way.

Case classy is a small library that makes part of this process easier. Case classy makes loading and decoding configuration data—usually strings—much easier. It prevents all-or-nothing runtime errors and instead provides a rich and comprehensive error data type for when this process goes wrong.

In this talk we will introduce Case Classy, showing how to use it and its benefits over other configuration libraries. We will dive into the functional programming foundations and how this enables us to assemble and combine decoders so that errors accumulate. And we will look at how Shapeless and generic programming can automatically assemble decoders for us and save us from an abyss of boilerplate.
