Programming in Scala, by Martin Odersky et al., is one of the most comprehensive and the de facto reference for Scala. However, the book, originally published in 2008 for Scala 2.7.2, has not been updated since its second edition in 2010, covering up until Scala 2.8.1. In the meantime, Scala had 3 major releases with numerous fresh and advanced features. While we wait for a third edition of Programming in Scala to describe all the latest and greatest Scala features introduced in the last 4 years, this talk presents the main features introduced in Scala 2.9, 2.10, and 2.11: Parallel collections Value classes, implicit classes, and extension methods String interpolation Futures and Promises Akka actors Macros and quasiquotes Reflection Modularization Dynamic types Error handling with Try The App trait New methods in collections Case classes with more than 22 parameters Predef.??? sbt incremental compilation 2.12 and beyond: what's in Scala future?
