    Anton Sviridov: Part 1 - The Scala Cross Platform Story

    Anton Sviridov: Part 1 - The Scala Cross Platform Story

    Welcome back to another episode of Tooling Talks! I'm your host Chris and we have yet another great episode for you this month. In fact, it's so great, that it will actually be two parts. For this first episode with Anton we got to chat about all things cross building, the various platforms you can run your Scala code on, and also about the work it takes to not only maintain projects with multiple Scala versions, but also for those various platforms. Anton has been an absolute joy to interact with online, he's helpful, he works on all sorts of open source projects, and he's another Neovim user, which might just be his best trait yet. So without further ado, let's dive in. Thanks for joining.

    Olivier Mélois: Diving into Smithy

    Welcome back to another episode of Tooling Talks! I'm your host Chris and I'm excited to share another episode with you this month. Firstly, I wanted to give a heartfelt thanks to everyone out there for your support. Whether its been through GitHub sponsors, Twitter messages, or just listens, seeing the interest around the podcast has been super encouraging. You're all the best. This month I was able to sit down with Olivier Mélois and have a fantastic conversation about Smithy and the surrounding ecosystem. We also talked about horses, build tools, editor integrations, and testing frameworks. There was no shortage of things to talk about with Oliver. So without further ado, let's dive in. Thanks for joining.

    Amina Adewusi: Let's Talk about Newcomers

    Amina Adewusi: Let's Talk about Newcomers

    Welcome back to another episode of Tooling Talks. I'm your host Chris and this month I was able to have an episode fully focused on something I've been wanting to cover for a while, the beginner experience in Scala Tooling. I'm incredibly grateful that Amina Adewusi was willing to take some time and dive into the topic with me. You may know Amina from the conference she created, Scalabase, which is a conference focused on newcomers to Scala, or maybe her course Learning Scala on LinkedIn, which is a short course focused on giving newcomers to Scala a great introduction. She had a ton of insight about the beginner experience, getting starting contributing to open source, and diversifying the ecosystem. It was a pleasure to have her, so without further ado, let's dive in.Thanks for joining.

    Gabriel Volpe: A look at Nix and Scala

    Gabriel Volpe: A look at Nix and Scala

    Welcome back to another episode of Tooling Talks. I'm your host Chris and this month I'm excited to sit down with another Neovimmer, Gabriel Volpe. You may know him from his books "Practical FP in Scala" or "Functional Event-Driven Architecture", his work maintaining multiple open source libraries, or maybe some of his talks online.  We talked all about editor choice, using Nix, and even a bit about the Scala Open Source community. I really enjoyed chatting with Gabriel and I'm exciting to see the future of what Nix and Scala together could look like. Without further ado, let's dive in. Thanks for joining.

    Tomasz Godzik: The Scalameta Firefighter

    Tomasz Godzik: The Scalameta Firefighter

    Welcome to a new year of Tooling Talks. I'm your host Chris and I'm excited to welcome you back to a new year of exciting interviews all about Tooling in the Scala Ecosystem. I've got some great guests lined up for this year, some great topics in the works, and maybe even some projects relating to Scala tooling that I'm excited to share with you. Our first guest of 2022 is one that I've worked with in open source for a couple years now. He's currently leading the charge of developing Metals and many of the other libraries and tooling that Metals relies on. Most of you out there listening are probably relying on something he's actively maintaining in the Scalameta ecosystem. We had a great conversation about getting involved in tooling, playing the role of a firefighter, and about some interesting new features in Metals. Without further ado, let's dive in and learn from Tomasz. Thanks for joining.

    Alex Archambault: Coursier and scala-cli - Changing the Way You Start Scala

    Alex Archambault: Coursier and scala-cli - Changing the Way You Start Scala

    Welcome to another episode of Tooling Talks, I'm your host Chris Kipp and I'm excited to share another interview with you this month. Whether or not you're familiar with it, if you're a Scala developer more than likely somewhere in your tool chain you're using Coursier. It's almost a no brainer that in the Scala ecosystem if you need to resolve some dependencies, quickly install a scala program, or quickly see the dependency tree of an artifact, it's the tool to use. That's why I'm so excited to sit with Alex Archambault this month and chat about all the tooling he's worked on from Coursier, Ammonite, Almond, and most recently scala-cli. Alex has had a tremendous impact on how all Scala developers get started with Scala, and has written arguably some of the most widely used tools in the Scala ecosystem, even if you're unaware you're relying on them. Without further ado, let's dive in. Thanks for joining.
