What knowledge can be obtained at the output?

  • Fundamentals of functional programming. We will analyze the principles of working with immutable and persistent data structures and the structure of these structures. The principles of data modeling are case classes, algebraic types, and pattern matching.
  • More sophisticated functional programming techniques: lazy computing; commonly used abstractions such as functor, applicative, and monad.
  • Using implicit values ​​and conversions. We will create tile classes, and then we will consider other applications of this mechanism. As an example, let's talk about how to work with JSON and how to handle parsing errors.
  • The concept of multithreading. First, let's look at the tools that the Java virtual machine gives us. Then let's move on to the higher-level primitives: let's talk about different approaches to writing competitive and parallel code. Take a closer look at the Future / Promise device, Akka actors.
  • Input-output: how are asynchronous clients for web services and databases built, how to combine input-output and asynchronous code.
  • Organization of asynchronous processing of data streams using the Akka Streams library as an example.
  • HTTP protocol and writing web services using the Play Framework and Akka Http.
