Originate’s own Marconi Lanna will speak at Scala by the Bay, a new conference being held this week in San Francisco for software developers. Lanna’s remarks, “What Is New in Scala,” will take place on the first day of the conference, August 8, 2014, and will focus on features introduced in Scala since publication of Programming in Scala.
Originally published in 2008 for Scala 2.7.2, Programming in Scala has become the de facto Scala manual, but it has not been updated since its second edition in 2010. Since that time, Scala has released three major updated versions, 2.9, 2.10, and 2.11.
“With Scala emerging as one of the most popular choices for digital architecture in recent years, it’s exciting to be on the leading edge, discussing what new versions of Scala offer,” said Lanna. “I’m looking forward to walking through the roadmap of the latest Scala features that have been introduced since 2010 and hopefully offering developers key insights into using the new capabilities.”
Lanna is planning to address topics including: parallel collections, value classes, string interpolation, futures and promises, Akka actors, and error handling with Try.
