If you've heard about the delimited continuations plugin in Scala 2.8+, but been intimidated by them then this talk is for you. Matthew Neeley will demystify these powerful constructs, explain what delimited continuations are and how they can be used with some real-world scenarios to solve interesting problems, such as resource management, asynchrony, and action composition in Play 2.
Matthew Neeley has a PhD in physics from UCSB, where he worked on quantum computing with superconducting qubits. He continued his research at MIT Lincoln Laboratory before deciding that the most enjoyable part of experimental physics was writing code, so why not do that full time? He now works at NetWallet in Palo Alto.
We need a venue. Would your company like to host?
We would like one more short presentation. It could either be about Play 2.0 or Scala delimited continuations.
