We need a downtown SF location for this meetup providing food and beer for developers!

Eugene Burmako was a student of Martin Odersky, the creator of Scala at EPFL, and the creator of Macro Paradise. After that he was a team lead at Twitter, developing Reasonable Scala (rsc).

Recently Eugene joined Google where he works with Chris Lattner, the creator of Swift, on Swift for TensorFlow. As a compiler specialist working on developer effectiveness, Eugene has unique insights into the ecosystems of both languages. While his first impressions are still fresh, Eugene will share his impressions of Swift with us.
