    The sound is terrible. Big pity.

    @Andre van Delft:


    We are looking into what we can do (the signal we received at the venue was just too maxed out and there is no pro audio equipment serving that room). We have a skilled editor looking into these audio "issues". Stay tuned.

    Oh, Lang.net already in progress! 

    Great talk here.  Smiley

    (I agree on the audio being sub-par. Compare the audio to e.g. the latest episode of cloud cover and you'll have much more pleasant voice recordings. The content rocks though.)

    @exoteric: Yeah. The audio system at the venue was less than stellar. We did what we could do. Now, as I mentioned above, we are working on it in post-production. (well, post post-production at this point). No guarantee we can magically make it better, but we're trying. No need to discuss this more on this post. Keep on topic!

    Cheers,

    Scala may be the best choice for JVM environment. It gives developers some functional concepts but is quite simple language still (for a Java developer). This was a great presentation. Also challenging audience.

    However, I didn't like the "Cake pattern". It reminds me of the C# partial classes: Try to be object-oriented (classes) but still break two basic design principles of OO:

    1. Single responsibility principle: Composition classes often have many responsibilities.

    2. Open Close Principle: Software entities like classes, modules and functions should be open for extension but closed for modifications. This means that the internal state and design of the entity should not be visible to outside.
