Traditionally, year's end is for composing lists of the best songs, movies and books released that year. Let's reflect on Scala's 2016 with some lists of our own! We'll kick it off with what's new in Scala 2.12, of course, and how it compares to Java 8's recent additions to the language and platform. Winter days are great for philosophizing, so lets retire to the library and muse on what functional programming means to you and me, pragmatic programmers. I aspire to make Scala a joy for you to use, and my wish list for Scala is driven by this desire to make more programmers more productive with Scala.
