Join the Bay Area Scala Enthusiasts Feb. 14th in Santa Clara, California to hear how Scala and the JVM work well together. Ever wonder what goes on below the arrows, double colons, and tildes of Scala's syntax? What changes must be made to the JVM and compiler to allow for higher order functions, Actors, and pattern matching? What low level engineering feats will be required for Scala and Java to truly interoperate? Come hear two speakers very close to the thinking and understanding of what goes in to making powerful functional programming features a reality on the JVM.
