This week in #Scala (19/10/2012)

Welcome back to this week in Scala!

Firstly, some more solemn news. Phil Bagwell, inventor of VList and whose work was foundational to data structure implementations in Scala, Haskell and Clojure, passed away on October 6th and his funeral was held this week. Typesafe recorded Martin Odersky's kind words about Phil. He will be missed and left a lasting impression on all.

Now, onto a roundup of Scala content from this past week:

New Stuff

Old Stuff

This week I offer you a conversation from 2009 around the question "Why did Twitter jump over from Ruby to Scala" which still makes for some interesting reading:

Twitter on Scala

Upcoming Events

Blogs & Tutorials

And finally, if you're interesting in joining the Cake team on a permanent basis - writing Scala, Java and maybe even some Haskell - please do get in touch with Matt Penney.


That's all folks. Have a great week and remember you can get in touch with me directly via email or message me on twitter (@ChrisCundill) with any Scala news, events or content.
