Scala's success isn't owned by Martin Odersky alone. Scala is successful because you embraced it, you built services, experiences, and entire companies with it that have changed how we interact with our world. And along with all of that, you bore an entire ecosystem of open source libraries and frameworks. Many of you have even contributed back to Scala's core libraries, compiler, and more. Can we do more to further this momentum? What kind of technical and organizational support can we provide to make it easier to collaborate on and use Scala libraries, and keep this trend going? In this talk, I'll brief you on what we have in store.
