ZIO Hackathon 2020 (Warsaw Edition)

Organized by FIL
From Mar 22nd 2020
To Mar 23rd 2020
See the website


The third official ZIO Hackathon is designed to bring together many core contributors to ZIO from all around the world, as well as current ZIO users, future ZIO users and contributors, and contributors to other libraries for async and concurrent programming in the broader functional Scala ecosystem.

Over the course of two days, we will share and learn about ZIO and related projects; chat about functional programming, functional Scala, and much more; work on fun projects; and get to know one another.

Note: No prior background knowledge of ZIO is assumed. If you're curious, please join us!

Saturday - Meet & Greet

Attendees will gather on the evening of Saturday (March 21) in Warsaw, Poland, right after the conclusion of Scalar Conf. Meet other ZIO contributors, ZIO users, and developers from the broader functional Scala ecosystem, and learn the basics of functional effect systems like ZIO.

Sunday - Hackathon & Breakouts

Attendees can join breakout sessions to learn about specific aspects of ZIO (ZIO core, fibers, STM, execution traces, fiber dumps, ZIO test, ZIO config, etc.), and team leaders will help different groups work on core issues in ZIO, the ZIO ecosystem, and other related libraries in the functional Scala ecosystem.

There will be ample time for networking activities during meals and after the days activities conclude.

Monday - Core Hackathon

Core contributors, and any attendees who are around, will meet for a second day of pure hackathons. No sessions will be scheduled on Monday.

There will be ample time for networking activities during meals and after the days activities conclude.

Note: Some people will leave early on Monday.

About ZIO

ZIO is a zero-dependency Scala library for asynchronous and concurrent programming.

Powered by highly-scalable, non-blocking fibers that never waste or leak resources, ZIO lets you build scalable, resilient, and reactive applications that meet the needs of your business.

High-performance. Build scalable applications with 100x the performance of Scala's Future.

Type-safe. Use the full power of the Scala compiler to catch bugs at compile time.

Concurrent. Easily build concurrent apps without deadlocks, race conditions, or complexity.

Asynchronous. Write sequential code that looks the same whether it's asynchronous or synchronous.

Resource-safe. Build apps that never leak resources (including threads!), even when they fail.

Testable. Inject test services into your app for fast, deterministic, and type-safe testing.

Resilient. Build apps that never lose errors, and which respond to failure locally and flexibly.

Functional. Rapidly compose solutions to complex problems from simple building blocks.
