A Tour Of Scala @ OSSGTP - Paris OSS user group

Very cool slides, if anything maybe too much :).

How much time did the talk last?

Did you get any feedback from your audience? (especially regarding the crazy amount of information in these slides).


Well, you get it pretty well: the talk was really too long, about 100 minutes, and the audience would have been happy with 40mn less.

But all in all, they found the presentation really good, and severals seems to want to take a look at Scala and lift.

The main feedback is "do not ever, never put a language like that in the hands of "java business developpers", they hurt themselves with Java, with something like that it's the end".
