Making a language simpler and more consistent, removing confusing parts and reducing the obstacles frequently hit by beginners is often a worthwhile, but also a hard and long process.
This talk will look at the work already done as well as the efforts currently underway to improve the design and the consistency of Scala and give an optimistic vision of things still to come.
The talk will be in English (although I'm able to switch to German if everyone in the audience is comfortable with it).
The talk will be given by Simon, who is a contributor of the Scala project.
18:30 Welcome and organizational matters
18:40 Simplifying Scala — The Past, Present and Future
After the meetup, we plan to go to the Pizzahaus for some interesting conversations and drinks.
The company is located in the Hoepfner-Burghof, on the third floor. You'll see signs posted to help you find your way.
