About This Talk

One of the core Scala domains is scalable, concurrent, or parallel data processing, which typically at some point is powered by JVM Threads. However, the Scala Native - an ahead-of-time compiler and runtime for Scala, was for a long time limited to only a single thread of execution. At first glance, it might have sounded like it a not a big deal. Starting system threads is easy...but then, suddenly, you need to deal with memory models, garbage collections, synchronization, data atomicity, and many more blockers, just to provide the same semantics as JVM ensures.
