Paul Phillips is a co-founder of Typesafe and the most prolific committer to Scala. His talk is about creating a better collections library for Scala.
"Based on my extensive experience with scala collections, I'm writing my own. The focus is much tighter: immutable, performant, predictable, correct. The talk will alternate between why the scala collections manage none of those things, and how I hope to do better."
