What is (are) you favourite Scala feature(s)?

The language is a majestic creation with an elegance that all lovers of languages could appreciate. The scalability and its simplicity of vast complexity. It embodies the flexibility that we need to handle today's challenges from concurrency, object-orient or functional programming ... any problem can be solved big or small ... and no matter what you can always design or optimize your code.


My life has been a journey through my passions in machine learning, software engineering, graph theory, physics and non-linear dynamical systems. I've worked in SF, Boulder and NYC with Bloomberg, Google, NCAR and my own start-ups.
