I have been following Scala Native since its introduction at Scala Days 2016 in NY. I have tried to contribute to every version since it became public.
This talk focuses on why we need Scala Native.
My hope is that seeing the potential of Scala Native will generate excitement to use and contribute to Scala Native.
