This talk aims to shed some light on how Scala's type-level programming is essentially logic programming, and give reasoning for code, comprising 8+ implicit parameters with funny names (FnHipsterAux).
Scala is known to be a nice blend of object-oriented and functional paradigms. A lesser known fact is that it's also a logic programming language...in type system! After all, it's not the syntax, but rather the semantics we're after right? Functional in the small, OO in the large, logic in the type system!
