Type-driven Development has gotten a lot of steam over the past few years. Like many new trends in software, type-driven development looks good intellectually but can it help real businesses deploy real products and make real money today? My answer is an emphatic 'Yes, it can!' This workshop aims to provide a basic knowledge of what it means for an application to be type-driven as well as an understanding of what it takes to create a Scala application in the type-driven discipline.

I have been developing software professionally since 2010. At the end of 2013, I Googled "a better java" and that's how I stumbled upon the Scala programming language. Since then I've really gotten into strongly-typed, purely functional development. Currently, I work in center city Philadelphia for IntegriChain writing typeful, functional Scala applications for life sciences.
