What André van D. is saying about this Meetup Group

Just a few OT remarks: Paul Phillips was mentioned this evening; he just left TypeSafe, see here for more: http://www.reddit.com/r/scala/comments/1ovh3w/paul_phillips_explains_why_he_lost_faith_in_scala/ I recommend the linked video. His leaving is a loss for TypeSafe since Paul is a great compiler writer. I enjoyed his presentation at Scala Days 2012: http://skillsmatter.com/podcast/scala/scalac-internals Paul was unhappy with the state of the Scala Language Specification, since it was up to date for 0.8, and thereafter not changed. Martin Odersky gives updating the spec a lower priority since he wants to finish the DOT calculus first. I highly appreciate Paul, but I think Martin made a wise decision. See this thread: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/scala-language/tZLxQVG-1vw
