Hi Brian, Gavin, people,
Thanks for your comments on the idea of List<int> specializing from
My attention was drawn to the simpler of Gavin's proposals -- 'Any'
implements as Object, but can be specialized. (Second 'tagged union'
proposal I feel would be too complex.)
I know our focus in this current phase is on "Layers", but would like to
educate myself further about the general background of issues with Any. To
this end I have so far investigated the following videos & resources:
- Paul Phillips, Scala War Stories
- Brian Goetz - Stewardship: the Sobering Parts
Brian, I did want to research the JVMLS 2014 keynote you mentioned; is
that you with John Rose "Evolving the JVM"?
- John Rose & Brian Goetz, Evolving the JVM
Let me know if this is the video you referred to, and if there were any
other good resources?
As an aside, I was very interested in the "Stewardship" video, and
appreciated the important perspectives Brian conveys & is responsible
for... I also got a little bit more insight into Brian's concern with
All the above videos very informative & recommended.
