Exposing an HTTP API using Scala3

Adam Warski

It's about time to leverage the new features available in Scala3! A number of libraries have been updated, making it possible to write fully-functional applications using the latest Scala version.

You'll create a basic application from scratch, exposing an HTTP API, using the following Scala3 features:
* enums to define data structures
* opaque types for even more type-safety
* typeclass derivation using the `derives` keyword
* extension methods
* new braceless syntax
