What JavaScript taught me about programming in Scala

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

As a longtime Scala developer who recently switched to (nearly) full-time JavaScript development, I have learned some interesting and unexpected lessons about the capabilities and ecosystem of both JavaScript and Scala. In this talk, we'll go through some of the more compelling examples, and see what one language might learn from the other.
