Welcome to ZIO News, your bi-weekly newsletter dedicated to ZIO and its ecosystem!

Major Releases
Nothing major during the last period 👀
ZIO Ecosystem
If you are using DynamoDB, you might be interested in a new library called d4s, whose goal is to let you work with DynamoDB in a purely functional way. It relies on Izumi type classes to integrate with ZIO using tagless final. There is an example project as well.
The team at Scalac put together this giter8 template for a basic Scala application using ZIO, Akka HTTP and Slick, a good way to get started.
Another interesting integration is zio-tapir, demonstrating usage of tapir with ZIO endpoints for API creation and documentation generation.
Blog Articles
For those who might be curious or confused about where ZIO is coming from, John De Goes wrote this Brief History of ZIO. A good way to understand where it’s headed as well.
Another big article update from Pavels Sisojevs, this time about ZIO Test. A lot of improvements have been made on ZIO Test and ZIO Environment and this article covers them with a lot of examples.
Samuel Orji wrote an article about Functional Programming with ZIO and Akka HTTP. There is also a github repository with the full code.
Finally, Adrian Filip shares his experience moving from Kotlin + Spring Reactor + Arrow to Scala + ZIO, with a small application example written with both stacks.
Published Talks
SF Scala is now happening remote, and last meetup had Leo Benkel talk about Spark integration with ZIO.

ZIO is:
1. An elegant, maximally composable primitive we've been missing for so long!
2. An engineering marvel.
3. A prime example of great open source collab & mentorship.
4. Scala's new killer app - I'll adopt Scala if I can't get it in my language.
5. Pure FP made approachable https://t.co/tohvTQRbgV

The primary thing breathing life into Scala right now is @zioscala. It is the biggest opportunity for growth.

While I agree #Scala was in the trough of disillusionment, the appearance of #ZIO and the upcoming #Scala3 release have great potential to accelerate Scala adoption in 2020-2022 period @zioscala https://t.co/etdQAC9c7G
