Speaking at FOSDEM
by Martin Odersky
February 5, 2009
A talk about Scala, and an interview


I am going to give a talk about Scala at FOSDEM 2009 in Brussels, on Saturday February 7th at 16.00. FOSDEM stands for Free and Open Source European Developers Meeting. FOSDEM takes the concept of open source to conferences: admission is free, but donations are welcome. They attract a big crowd of open source developers and have an impressive list of speakers. If you are in the area, please drop by! You might also be intested in the interview I have done for them.


Here are the slides of the talk. Some of the program examples did not come out quite right in Slideshare's reformatting, but overall it's legible.

Talk Back!

About the Blogger

Martin Odersky is the inventor of the Scala language and professor at EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland. In 2008, he was appointed fellow of the ACM for his contributions to the fusion of functional and object-oriented programming. He believes the two paradigms are two sides of the same coin, to be unified as much as possible. To prove this, he has worked on a number of language designs, from Pizza to GJ to Functional Nets. He has also influenced the development of Java as a co-designer of Java generics and as the original author of the current javac reference compiler.
