We will take a deep dive into one of Scala's more advanced language constructs: the for expression. In this coding-example-heavy talk we will cover topics like: * For, it's not about looping * Work on what's inside, ignore what's outside * To yield or not to yield, there is no question * Don't mix your types * Statements in an expression? * Pattern Matches * Guards * In-line assignments * Fors within fors * Using a for with your own types * How it all de-sugars And much more. This talk aims to have something for everyone. Whether just starting out with Scala or a multi-year Scala veteran, there is likely something you didn't know about for in this talk.
