Scala IDE internals

A lot of people nowadays use an IDE but not everyone of these users know how their IDE internally works.

On the basis of the Scala IDE for Eclipse we will take a look under the hood and discover the overall architecture of the Scala IDE, how all the different components work together and what algorithms are used to keep the editor efficient.

At the end we will also take a closer look into Scalas refactoring library and some of the problems that arise when an originally constructed CLI based scalac needs to interact with completely incompatible data structures living in the IDE.


The talk will be given by Simon Schäfer, an open source contributor of the Scala IDE.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
