1st Presentation:
Type classes in Scala, by Rafał Kucab Software Developer at Schibsted Polska

The presentation will cover the basics of a very powerful and flexible concept of type classes which adds ad-hoc polymorphism to Scala language. We will go through a very simple example of how to implement and use this mechanism in your code. If you are learning Scala or you are an experienced Java developer and want to know how it works from scratch this presentation is for you.
