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.
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.
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.
