——– Karin-Aleksandra Monoid —— Functional Kotlin with Arrow

What is a monad? Do I need a PhD to write in functional style? How do I do that in Kotlin? And other questions that you were afraid to ask.

In this talk, we’ll walk through Arrow Core, the functional companion to the Kotlin standard library. We’ll cover both the concepts that every software engineer may add to their project right now and more advanced structures, starting from non-empty list, going over Validated and Either followed by monad comprehension.

—— Dmitry Kandalov —— Live coding server as a function with http4k

Http4k is a lightweight HTTP library written in Kotlin that enables serving and consuming of HTTP services in a functional and testable way. Unlike many other libraries and frameworks which have complicated abstractions and workflows, http4k captures the essence of communication over HTTP with a few simple concepts. In this session I will explain and demo the core concepts in http4k by live coding from scratch an HTTP server which will simulate the board from the noughts and crosses game.
