A lot has happened since Lars Hupel gave his "State of the Typelevel" keynote at last years Scala eXchange. It hasn't always been plain sailing, but the arrival of the Cats project on the scene earlier this year marked the beginning an exciting period of collaboration among the Typelevel projects and reaching out to the wider Scala community that hadn't been possible before.
This talk is about those collaborations: between Algebra, Spire and Cats; between Cats and shapeless; between shapeless and scodec, doobie, ScalaCheck and Argonaut; and how all of this is feeding into the rebooted Typelevel Scala project. It's also an open invitation to people right across the Scala spectrum to get involved in these projects and see what they can do for them in their own work.

Keynote: Typelevel - the benefits of collaboration
Miles has been doing stuff with Scala for more than ten years, currently with Underscore Consulting. He is a cofounder of Typelevel and his best known project, the Scala generic programming library shapeless, is the weapon of choice wherever boilerplate needs to be scrapped or arities abstracted over.
