Scala Days 2013 / Slick vs. ORM

Please RSVP for instructions on how to join the event.


Christopher Vogt & Stefan Zeiger Slick is not an object-relational mapper, but a functional-relational mapper leading to unique benefits. Using Slick efficiently may be counter-intuitive to people familiar with ORM systems. This talk explains how common ORM use cases should me implemented differently using Slick and what the benefits are. In short, ORM systems suffer from the consequences of the object-relational impedance mismatch, where in contrast Slick's mapping to functional programming constructs is rather straight forward. This allows for tight integration with Scala and highly re-useable code for composing queries.
