Journey to the holy grail – Scala faster and smaller
Scala development is notoriously plagued by its long compilation times and large deployment artifacts.
This gets even worse if you are using Docker, considering you need a full Java Runtime, your package can take almost 100 megabytes.

This talk will take you in a small journey on how to make (specially short lived) Scala applications faster and smaller taking advantage of GraalVM native-image.
