Scala: Demystifying The Funky Stuff
Scala is known for both its clarity in some cases, and its obscurity in others. Well, this presentation sticks with the obscurity. We will cover abstract types, the Predef, implicit conversions, creating infix types, singleton types, type variance, type bounds, type variance, partially applied functions vs. partial functions, type projections, and overcoming type erasure using Manifests.
This presentation is geared in at the programmer level and not at a scientific level, with no type theory or calculus. Basic knowledge of Scala is preferrable, though not required. Asking tough questions is mandatory.
