Scala Macros Hacking (with Luc Duponcheel)

  • Mar 12, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

During this hacking session we are going to explore three different approaches to macro implementations

•  AST based approach

• reify/splice based approach

• quasiquotes based approach

and discuss their power of expression and conciseness.

Among others, we are going to implement some of the macros presented during the previous session (it is not necessary to have followed that session though).

The hacking session will be a moderated one: instead of working in isolation we are going to work together step-by-step on the same problems and sub-problems.

Be warned: the moderator is not a macro guru, but somebody who, just like you, tries to understand more about this interesting feature of the Scala programming language.

The hacking session will take place in a location with a limited amount of seats (approx. 10).

First booked, first served. If the hacking session turns out to be more successful than anticipated, then we can think of repeating it.

    I think this is a great initiative and I would love to join, but the next week I'm on vacations.
    I find not just the Scala macros, but the whole concept of meta-programming very very useful. One thing though, despite all the "macros are very powerful", it seems that most of the presentation / tutorials I saw just scratching the surface and it would be great to go beyond the "debug" macro. I understand that you have to start with something, but it is important to leave the "hello world" examples.
    I hope the session will be a success so it gets repeated and I can join the next time!
