Demystifying Scala Extractors
by Daniel Hinojosa
At this year's NFJS Tour, I have a new presentation that I am excited to talk about — "Scala, Demystifying the Funky Stuff". The presentation distills many of the more complicated topics that can pose an issue for the new and interested Scala programmer. The presentation covers partial functions vs. partially applied functions, the Predef, type variables, implicit parameters, implicit converters, implicit wrappers, infix types, the Manifest, abstract types, type projections and type bounds. One topic that did not make it into the live presentation is Scala extractors, so for now, it will have to be housed as an article in this venerable magazine.
