Video of my talk at Scala Days 2013.
Abstract: Scala continues to be fun! Implementing algorithms to solve Sudoku puzzles, bioinformatic problems, and analyzing time-series data has been a great learning experience. Creating video games and mods have made my game time much more enjoyable and gave me an opportunity to impress my friends! To do all these, I used a myriad of technologies from Scala IDE, sbt, and giter8 to git, Android, and Play! In the process, I learned a lot more about Scala's features such as traits, iterators, streams, lazy vals, implicit classes, and typeclasses.
In this talk, I will share a few games, Android apps, and algorithms that show how Scala made implementing complex programs simple. I will also demonstrate a few awesome Minecraft mods written in Scala and a "mind blowing" project.
