This presentation aims to talk about the possibility of incorporating Scala support into OpenDaylight. The goal here is to talk about the benefits that could arise from using this functional language to develop plugins or modules for OpenDaylight. Two of the foreseen benefits would be to cut some boilerplate code typically associated with Java and attract new developers to the OpenDaylight project. An overview will be done of some of the frameworks that could be leveraged to simplify concurrent and distributed programming as well as day to day programming task.
