Subject Re: using Scala for
Date Fri, 06 Jan 2012 09:50:06 GMT
My 2 cents:

As a potential contributor to the package with a good
background in machine learning, I would say Scala is not a barrier for
me (even if I don't use it often right now). Maybe even the opposite
as I find coding in Scala more fun than Java. Profiling and perf
tuning can be a bit harder though.

The most important drawback I had against Scala in the past was the
poor / buggy Eclipse support for Scala which made it painful to work
with multi-language (Java + Scala) projects but the situation has very
much improved over the past 2 years.
