Supporting the Scala Ecosystem: Stories from the Line

Presented by: Justin Pihony

At Lightbend we have handled over 10,000 customer support cases ranging from simple Scala compilation issues to complex Akka performance puzzles. Supporting Scala and its largest libraries has resulted in some really interesting issues, such as:

* a seemingly valid cast leading to a ClassCastException
* handling external communication with Akka Cluster
* a subtle workaround to a SecurityException bug in Play

This talk aims to have something for everyone, whether you are just looking to hear some mind-bending stories or proactively learn how to stay out of these situations yourself.

Level: Introductory and overview
