Video: Martin Odersky on the Scala Programming Language


In this video, EPFL’s Martin Odersky discusses the reasons why he created the Scala general purpose programming language. Scala is designed to express common programming patterns in a concise, elegant, and type-safe way. It smoothly integrates features of object-oriented and functional languages, enabling Java and other programmers to be more productive.

Recorded at OSCON 2011 in Portland.
