Scalaz-stream introduced the Scala ecosystem to purely functional streams. Although widely deployed in production at Verizon, SlamData, and elsewhere, the last release of scalaz-stream was October 23rd, 2016, and newer projects such as FS2, Monix Iterant, and others have risen to fill the gap, each addressing different use cases in the functional programming community. In this talk, John A. De Goes, architect of the Scalaz 8 effect system, unveils a new design for a next-generation version of scalaz-stream. Designed to embrace the powerful features of the Scalaz 8 effect system—features not available in any other effect type—this design features higher-performance, stronger guarantees, and far less code than previous incarnations. You are invited to discover the practicality of functional programming, as well as its elegance, beauty, and composability, in this unique presentation available exclusively at Scale By the Bay.
