Examine real-world programming problems with Senior Software Engineer, Richard Whaling.

In this talk at Scala Days New York, Richard helped us to learn just how accessible low-level programming can be with Scala.

Starting from Scratch with Scala Native

In this talk, we'll learn how Scala Native uses POSIX and ANSI C API's to build concise, expressive programs that run unusually close to bare metal. By examining real-world programs, we'll learn just how accessible and expressive low-level programming can be with a modern language like Scala.
