Supporting the Scala Ecosystem: Stories from the Line

Session Recording

About this Session

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

Required Knowledge

No previous knowledge is required as this should be for all experience levels.
