Applicative Style Command Line Parsing

Using command line parsing as an example, this will be a (code heavy) look at an interesting use of a data structure that gives us the ability to build-up functions that can act as both parsers and printers. We will then explore how we can exploit applicative functors to build up a practical and clean API around this data structure.

This talk was presented at ScalaSyd, July 2014.
