TOOLING TALKS

a series of talks about tooling

Ólafur Páll Geirsson: The Scalameta World

SEASON: 1 - EPISODE: 1

INTRO

It's incredibly fitting that my first guest for tooling talks is Olaf. Just about two year ago I sent an email to Olaf, introduced myself, told him I loved Metals and that I wanted to help. This ultimately lead to my affinity with Developer tooling and also my entryway into that world. You may know Olaf from the impressive amount of tools that's he's either authored or worked on. I'm sure you probably use some of them. Metals, the Scala Language server, Scalafmt, the defacto formatter for Scala, Scalafix, mdoc, munit, and Scalameta. Olaf's fingerprints are all over the standard Scala toolchain. Apart the incredible amount of work in open source he's done over the years at the Scala Center, Twitter, and now Sourcegraph, he's also a kind and helpful individual that's full of insight. It's an absolute pleasure for me to have him as my first guest.
