10:15 -11:00 Viktor Klang: "2016—a Scala odyssey"

In this presentation we will examine what Scala is in 2016 and connect it with its history – how it has evolved over the past 10 years. We will talk about lessons learned, both from a language perspective as well as from an open source and software engineering point of view; about unexpected virtues and flaws – and of course – we’ll talk about how to maximize the joy of using, and the chance of success with Scala as a language and as a platform.

Viktor Klang is the Deputy CTO at Lightbend, Scala programmer since 2007, prolific contributor to the Akka project since 2009, as well as member of the Reactive Streams Special Interest Group and involved in the Scala Standard Library concurrency APIs. Interested in all things distributed and concurrent – software and hardware.
