Scala 2.10 introduces new abstractions to simplify concurrent and asynchronous programming (a.k.a. SIP-14). This talk dives deep into the design and usage of Futures and Promises, as well as their efficient, non-blocking implementation. It also covers the new Try and ExecutionContext types and will show how Futures are used in applications using frameworks like Play and Akka.
