Seth Tisue delivers a beginner-friendly introduction to the Typeclass pattern in Scala in this video from the 2012 Northeast Scala Symposium.

Seth will cover:

  • Typeclasses: What they are and where they came from
  •  How Typeclasses are expressed in Scala
  • When you might want to use Typeclasses over other kinds of polymorphism such as inheritance and overloading

Seth's slides:

The Northeast Scala Symposium is a yearly gathering of the Scala community, made possible by efforts of Boston, Philadelphia and New York Scala enthusiasts.

This post is part of 2012 Northeast Scala Symposium Videos.
