Scala 3 is just around the corner. Both EPFL and the broader community have put a lot of work into making this Scala release a success. In this talk, I will outline some of the history behind Scala 3 and what steps we took in the Typelevel ecosystem to get ready for Scala 3, and keep up with its development.
Typelevel's Road to Scala 3
Lars is a consultant with INNOQ in Munich, Germany. They are known as one of the founders of the Typelevel initiative which is dedicated to providing principled, type-driven Scala libraries in a friendly, welcoming environment. A frequent conference speaker, they are active in the open source community, particularly in Scala. They also enjoy programming in and talking about Haskell, TypeScript, Prolog, and Rust. Previously, they were a PhD student at TU München in the field of logic and verification. Their research focus was on techniques for verified code generation from theorem provers.
