As Scala waxes in popularity, we are seeing more and more demand for high-quality libraries come from the community. Many of us are wary of transitive dependencies and also worried about building monolithic libraries and frameworks. Simultaneously, you may fear that it's too hard for newcomers to get started in Scala, and too confusing for people to find existing libraries. What should you do? This talk will explore the challenges of designing and depending on Scala libraries, and also the trade-offs inherent in standardization. You will learn what we might want, where we could go, and how we would get there.
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.
