During this talk, you will discover a new script-file format for writing your Scala code. Unlike traditional Scala projects, which are built with SBT or Maven or Ant and edited inside your IDE, Scala Scripts do not need a "project" or "build tool" in order to run. You simply write your code in a single file, and run it. Need code in another script? Simply import it. Need a third-party library? You can import it too.
This greatly reduces the barrier to entry of automating common tasks via Scala, and allows Scala to be used for common housekeeping work at the command-line, much like Python or Ruby is used today. You will discover this Scala Scripting file format, explain how it works, and what place it could find in the Scala ecosystem today.
The Call for Papers is now open for Scala eXchange 2017! Submit your talk for the chance to join a stellar line-up of experts on stage. Find out more.
