Reactive Database Mapping with Scala and Slick

Are you familiar with Object-Relational Mapping? Let's get out of the comfort zone and meet a completely different approach to mapping database tables to domain objects using Scala's Slick library during this no-fluff-just-code live-coding session.

Slick does what some call FRM, i.e. Functional-Relational Mapping (as opposed to ORM), which basically lets you access your relational database as if it was a Scala collection.

And since reactive is THE way to go nowadays, we' re going to be no different.
