Eugene Burmako introduces Scala macros, starting with the initial design and the actual release in production in Scala 2.10, addressing Scala macro system use cases and patterns.
Eugene Burmako believes that metaprogramming can be applied to mainstream programming in a safe and disciplined way. Since fall 2011, as a member of the Scala team and Martin Odersky's PhD student, he's realizing this vision in the Scala macros project. Before joining EPFL he was experimenting with metaprogramming for CLR.
