Macros are a useful tool in every Scala developer's toolbox. We sometimes use them without knowing. At some point, you may be tempted to try writing your own - in this talk, you'll see how to start.
We'll spend some time trying to understand macros in Scala - what they are, why we would use them, and how. We'll see examples of situations where macros can help us. I'll show a few very simple macros, and later, when we grasp the main ideas, we'll go through creating a more complex mathematical macro.
Speaker: Jakub Kozłowski
Jakub Kozłowski is a young hAkker who spends his days breaking code and wearing tech conference t-shirts, which probably make up 90% of his wardrobe. After leaving his CS program with just a single semester under his belt, Jakub now has more time for his interests, which include writing Scala at Scalac, playing bass guitar, trying out new pieces of tech, reading ASOIAF and watching Vikings.
