In the development of fast-paced, service-oriented systems, it is not uncommon for changes in major requirements to emerge. Things that were concrete like protocols, transports, and encodings may need to be altered, e.g., due to the organization switching to a new tech stack. Oli introduces Mu, a new FP library for building web services aiming to make such changes painless. Mu offers code annotations for defining RPC or REST APIs, message types, and serialization formats, thus removing dependency on protocol-specific declarations and enabling seamless changes between different implementations.
Scala syntax, basic understanding of RPC, REST.
Knowing Tagless Final encoding would help, however, it's not a requirement.
