Transitioning C# to Scala Using Thrift

ScalaA 30 minute presentation I made on Sept 19th in a Scala-Toronto meetup. The slides introduce Apache Thrift and the additional features offered by Twitter’s Finagle stack.

The overall theme is presenting the lessons learnt while using of the cross-language RPC capabilities of Thrift to transition a Microsoft .Net C# workplace to Scala.

The presentation’s slides are from a technical prospective; a co-worker has an excellent blog elucidating the motivation, social effect, and final outcome of the company’s decision to choose Scala. It is well worth a read.
