Implicits: With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility

Implicits: With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility

Implicits are a powerful feature of Scala, and this power must be wielded carefully. The talk with cover an introduction to implicits, "pimp my library", view bounds, and context bounds, touching lightly on typeclasses and finally handing off to Vlad to give a more detailed overview of the powerful typeclass pattern. No prior knowledge of implicits is required, but some familiarity with Scala may be needed to understand code samples in the slides.
