In this talk, we'll learn how Scala Native uses POSIX and ANSI C API's
to build concise, expressive programs that run unusually close to bare metal.
By examining real-world programs, we'll learn just how accessible and expressive
low-level programming can be with a modern language like Scala.
basic familiarity with scala working knowledge of Linux command-line tools and file system
How all programs use system calls for networking and other IO operations How Scala Native can use UNIX system calls directly for simple, high-performance code How Scala Native represents C-style memory allocation How to use C libraries from Scala Native programs
