This presentation discusses Scala (a hybrid Object Oriented and Functional language) and Lift (a Scala-based web framework with features based on Scala pattern matching and functional composition). Lift's O-R mapper supports type-safe query building via Scala's type system. Lift abstracts away the HTTP request/response cycle by associating functions with HTML page elements.
