The Next 700 Asynchronous Programming Models



Philipp Haller explains how to make Rx programming more natural and intuitive by generalizing Scala's Async which, so far, has been used to program with non-blocking futures in a familiar direct style


Philipp Haller is a Consultant at Typesafe and a member of the Scala team. He created Scala's first actors library, and is one of the lead designers of the futures library of Scala 2.10. He worked on parallel domain-specific languages embedded in Scala at Stanford's Pervasive Parallelism Lab and co-authored the book “Actors in Scala”.

About the conference

SPLASH is home to OOPSLA, Onward! and DLS. OOPSLA is the forum for many important software developments of the last few decades: CRC cards, CLOS, design patterns, Agile, SOA, Wikis, UML, TDD, refactoring, Java, and Aspects. Onward! is about programming and software: processes, methods, languages, communities, and applications. DLS addresses dynamic languages: their implementation and application.
