Splash 2016: Nada Amin and Ross Tate on breaking Java and Scala's type system
Upcoming young academic researchers Ross Tate and Nada Amin published a very interesting paper about deficiencies in the Java and Scala programming languages. Splash Conference publicity chair and professor software engineering Tijs van der Storm studied the paper and talks about their research results and the consequences.
Nada Amin just submitted her Ph.D. thesis in October 2016 at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland and works in the core team for Scala with prof. Martin Odersky. Ross Tate is assistant professor at Cornell University, New York, and together they did research on the 'soundness' of the Java and Scala type systems.
