Software Developer @ The Guardian
I have graduated from the University of Bucharest with a BSc degree in Computer Science. A couple of months later, in September 2015, I joined the Guardian digital team as a Graduate Software Developer. Ever since I’ve been learning Scala, tried different teams and experimented with many technologies.
Programming in Scala is sometimes very time consuming. Finding the most efficient way to solve a problem can end up in days of frustration. This talk is a story of trail and error with a twist at the end. It’s a story of API endpoints, generic programming, Shapeless and what happens when they all come together. Everything with examples and plenty of code.
