Episode 19

Vampire Methods:
cool macro tricks for generating matchers for case classes

This talk will describe step by step how to use a def macro and even macro-generated macros to generate an efficient new class type for matching case classes.
Eric Torreborre

Algebird and approximation streaming algorithms:
An introduction to Twitter's abstract algebra library
 
This talk will cover what Algebird is and explore some of its key concepts such as aggregators and the streaming algorithms they enable.
Stephan Hoermann

Programming with the Actor Model
An exploration of what is right and what is wrong with actor programming.  Not every reactive programming design fits the pipeline model (composed futures or asynchronous iteratees etc), but we do need to deal with mutable state and asynchronous events in our software.

    Akka discussion was particularly good - we live in a world of changing state yet desire FP reasoning. More of this would be great.

      btw the Atlassian guy manning the lift (can't remember his name - very nice) referred me to this blog for additional discussion on this topic http://pchiusano.blog...­

      Glad you found it.

    I'm glad the actor talk was my first introduction to Scala. Brings home the fact that there is no magic bullet when it comes managing state, concurrency and horizontal scaling. Its diffiult no matter what language you are coding in.
