Scala Typeclasses: Decoupling, decoupling, decoupling!

In this video tutorial, I'll go over the "typeclass" design pattern in Scala, a very powerful technique for keeping your software architectures modular, decoupled and open to extension. Originally implemented as a Haskell language feature, the typeclass pattern in Scala leverages implicits to achieve additional flexibility and control.

This video is aimed at developers with some basic experience in Scala and assumes a bit of background with algebraic data types (sealed traits and case classes), implicits and general object-oriented design.
