Scala 3 becoming more “opinionated”

Via Kelley Robinson, one of Martin Odersky’s slides at ScalaDays (May, 2018) is titled, “Realizing Scala’s Potential,” with these bullet points:

  • become more opinionated
  • simplify
  • eliminate inconsistencies and puzzlers
  • build on strong foundations
  • consolidate language constructs to improve: consistency, safety, ergonomics, performance

As Ms. Robinson writes, “Scala was a language toolbox, and that leads to fragmentation. Scala 3 wants to become more opinionated.”
