In this talk, Bill Venners will tell the story of the journey from a design that leaned towards implicit conversions in ScalaTest 1.0 to one that emphasizes implicit parameters in ScalaTest and ScalaUtils 2.0.

Using primarily demos in the Scala REPL, Bill will show you several use cases and applications of implicit parameters that will help you understand the tradeoffs between implicit conversions and parameters and how to take advantage of implicit parameters in your own designs.
