Rúnar Bjarnason calls the Interpreter Pattern "a classic object-oriented design pattern that has been overlooked by far too many for far too long. At NE Scala, he gives "this unsung hero the accolades it deserves."
Erik Osheim talks about intervals, explains how algebraic type classes support arithmetic over a wide range of types, and demos how intervals can be used in the place of Ranges, Sets, and Loops.
Josh Suereth’s talk for NE Scala is about “Selfish UIs,” a concept that begins with making software for yourself, in order to improve your ability to make software for other people.
Today, according to Dean Wampler, Scala has successfully taken over the Big Data world. This is a talk about why.
In this talk for NE Scala, Neville presents how Scala Macros can be used to improve data pipeline code levering Parquet, Avro, Scalding and Spark.
Marconi Lanna explains how to define and use F-bounded types in Scala, enlisting the compiler to enforce advanced trait semantics, while greatly reducing and simplifying unit tests.
Owein Reese wants you to be more comfortable with dependent types / path-dependent types, to understand them in more detail, and to spark ideas that generally help us gain insights into our every day code.
Typically, when implementing numeric algorithms, common wisdom suggest that between speed, correctness, or simplicity, you can choose only 2. But, is it possible to have all 3?
Understanding type inference can be tricky... even for experts in Scala. Jon Pretty does his best to clear up some of the confusion and questions.
Dick Wall is on a mission to make positive changes to the Scala language. This talk outlines his ideas on how to make contributing easier, more fun, and a generally better experience
A comparison of the approaches to functional error handling taken by Scalaz and Scalactic.
Service-oriented architecture looks good in theory, as boxes and lines on a whiteboard, but how does it work in practice?
A talk on Akka HTTP, which according to Mathias Doenitz, "takes reactive high-performance web interactions to the next level."
NE Scala comes to Boston, 13 incredible talks came out.
Pattern matching is a killer feature in Scala. Those of you coming from a Java background might find this particularly interesting, because even with Java 8, there’s nothing like this in Java.
This is an introduction to H2O from Oxdata, an open source, big data in-memory prediction engine. Michal Malohlava and Cliff Click discuss the value of predictions, how they're done, and Scala's role.
Macros are handy tools, but can also cause a lot of headaches. Adriaan Moors discusses common pitfalls, and how you can make them IDE friendly, in hopes of making macros a little less scary.
This is a quick introduction to sbt 1.0. Josh Suereth describes the new features coming with the 1.0 release and includes a demonstration of the client-server prototype.
Brian McKenna discusses his tool WartRemover: a method of writing linting rules which can be executed as compiler plugins, command line tools, or even as macros.
What's the difference between what you see, while looking at Scala source code, and what the JVM sees while interpreting it’s compilation unit?
New York Times developers used Scala to make an alternative CMS for third party agencies. Find out how in this 15-minute talk from NE Scala!
GeoTrellis is a Scala library for fast, distributed processing and analysis of geographic raster data. It also makes pretty pictures! Find out more in this awesome talk from NE Scala.
Luke Amdor visits NE Scala to help dispel the bad rap that often surrounds sbt. He covers best practices for any organization wishing to adopt sbt.
While Rúnar is usually an advocate for functional programming, here he plays devil’s advocate. (This is hyperbole and obviously has a happy ending!)
Paul Chiusano provides an overview of the library, shows its program model, and walks us through some examples of its use.
