Alexander Ioffe Senior Software Engineer @ NASDAQ OMX
My introduction to Scala six years ago was through Slick and I loved it… no, really. I’m not kidding! Since then, Query composition using Monads has been a passion of mine bordering on obsession. Three products and several hundred thousand lines of code later, I still don’t consider myself an expert but it’s a beautiful view from here. Querying is the future paradigm of not only big data but all data, and being a maintainer of Quill for the past two years has been a ton of fun. I hope to share some of that great experience!
