Adam Fraser
Ziverge, Co-founder, Solution Architect

Adam Fraser is a software engineer passionate about using the power of functional programming to solve hard business problems. He is one of the top contributors to ZIO, a library for asynchronous and concurrent programming in functional Scala. Adam is the co-author of the ZIO Test and the author of ZIO Query. He is a regular conference speaker, writer, and mentor to other software developers regarding functional programming.


For the last 10 years, developers in the Scala community have been exploring solutions based on concepts from functional programming. But so far these ideas have had a limited impact on programming "in the large" at most companies. In this talk, we'll discuss why that is and how a rapidly growing framework for writing cloud-native applications called ZIO may be changing that. If you haven't looked at Scala recently this is the perfect time to see what you have been missing!
