We’re happy to announce that 47 Degrees will be returning to the 2019 Scale by the Bay conference. Join us November 14th - 15th for two days of in-depth talks on Scala, functional programming, Thoughtful Software Engineering, Service Architectures, End-to-end Data Pipelines up to ML/AI, and more in San Francisco, CA.
Recursion schemes with Higherkindness
- Date: Thursday, November 14th
- Time: 11:40 AM - 12:10 PM
Recursive structures appear in many problems, from databases to machine learning, and writing functions to operate over them is not always a simple task. As functional programming tries to abstract as many things as possible, it offers a way to decouple a recursion from the implementation of business rules.
In this session, Andy and Oli will guide you through recursion schemes fundamentals and Droste, a recursion library for Scala. Along the way, we will explore how it can be utilized in practice, including examples of its usage in Skeuomorph, a library for transforming data protocols.
