Integrating IDEs with Dotty, the experimental Scala compiler

April 15, 2018

A great programming language should provide a great developer experience! This is why Dotty comes built-in with IDE support that is designed to be easy to use, robust and extensible. In this talk I’ll describe the technologies used to implement this. I will also describe some of the planned future improvements: ultimately, we would like the compiler to become much better at helping you write correct programs instead of just complaining when you make mistakes.
