Codacy was a sponsor of this year’s edition of ScalaX, Scala eXchange in London.

ScalaX was a beautifully organised conference: great venue, wonderful staff, and with everything running like clockwork.

Here are 10 of our hand-picked talks.


Keynote: Scaling Intelligence: moving ideas forward, by Jessica Kerr


Keynote: Without Resilience, Nothing Else Matters, by Jonas Bonér

Resilience is beyond fault tolerance, and Jonas told us all about it. Jonas spoke about how failure is a natural state in the application life cycle, the requirements of a sane failure model, resilient protocols and much more.


A deep dive into scalac, by Chris Birchall

Scala and Akka and Docker, oh my!, by Mario Camou

Seriously, what else do you need to know? 🙂

Mario showed us how to package an application in a Docker image, how to integrate this packaging into the build process, and all the caveats we should know about the process. It’s a must see.


Go distributed (and scale out) with Actors and Akka Clustering, by Patrick Di Loreto

A very interesting case study of using Akka Cluster in a scenario with a peak of 5 million updates per minute.


Optimising Scala for fun and profit, by Rory Graves

A great talk on Scala performance, covering profiling, optimization, algorithmic analysis and several tricks you should know.


Making your life easier with macros, by Andrew Gustafson

A lightning talk on how to create your macros in Scala.

Andrew also made his slides and code available:


Flexible data structures in Scala, by Mikael Valot

In yet another lightning talk, Mikael showcased his project Strucs: “a lightweight library that allows to manipulate, encode and decode flexible data structures while maintaining immutability and type safety.”


More Typing, Less Typing: Driving behaviour with types, by Nick Pollard

A nice lightning talk on how to get the compiler to do some of our work for us.


Obviously, we didn’t get to see every single one of the talks (yet), so these are just the highlights of what we’ve seen. You can see all the Skillscasts here.
