On Pickles and Spores: Improving Scala's Support for Distributed Programming

10th June 2013 in New York City at Hudson Theater

This SkillsCast was filmed at Scala Days NYC - June 10-12th

SkillsCast coming soon.

This talk presents a new pickling framework designed for Scala with a few attractive properties: (1) using the framework requires little to no boilerplate, (2) using Scala's implicit parameters, users can add their own easily-swappable pickle format enabling users to persist to a number of formats, binary, JSON, or your own custom format, (3) using the type class pattern, users can provide their own custom picklers to override the default behavior of the pickling framework, (4) static, macro-based generation of picklers enables significant performance improvements.
