In this presentation, Lex Spoon discusses the Scala programming language. Topics covered include the origin of Scala, the philosophy behind Scala, the Scala feature set, Object-Oriented and Functional programming in Scala, examples of Scala code, writing DSLs, how Scala is converted into Java, Scala performance, Abstract Data Types, unapply, actors and partial functions.
Lex Spoon divides his time between two posts: he works at EPFL in Switzerland on the Scala team, and at IBM Research in New York on X10. He thus has a lot of recent experience with advanced programming languages that play nice with the existing Java world.
JAOO is the premier European developer conference on software technology, methods and best practices. The conference presents in-depth presentations and tutorials by researchers, engineers and trend-setters in software engineering and technology.
Really interesting talk. Unfortunately...
Anyway, Scala really looks intriguing.
Re: Really interesting talk. Unfortunately...
Very interesting talk
Very few people want to sit and watch a 44 min interview. But I wouldn't mind downloading it and listening while I work out or drive....
Dissapointed with media delivery format/support
Or, why not syndicate the content on google video (with mp4 download support), etc simultaneously. I bet it would do more good for your brand recognition than cost you in pageviews.
