Nathan Dotz, of Detroit Labs, will talk about Scala on Android. Here's a preview:
Scala is a sometimes-intimidating programming language that is Object-Oriented, functional, statically typed and wicked badass. It comes batteries-included, featuring a rich collections API, Type inference, and dead-simple concurrency. Perhaps most poignantly though, it's also a 30MB JVM library that can compile to dalvik.
Come take a heads first dive into crafting an APK with glorious, nutritionally fit Scala. We'll see how we can get more power from less code when wrangling the Android framework to do your bidding. We'll even play with all the basic tools that make this stop seeming like a daunting task and start seeming more like a walk up the stairs.
