Lars is a consultant in Munich, Germany. He has been using Scala for quite a while now, and is known as one of the founders of the Typelevel initiative which is dedicated to providing principled, type-driven Scala libraries. He also talks about Haskell and Isabelle a lot.
Prolog is one of the most underrated programming languages around; possibly because of its strange syntax and the unusual paradigm. But it is a very nice special-purpose programming language. In this talk, I would like to introduce Prolog’s programming model, showcase some programming domains in which Prolog allows for very concise, elegant programs, and finally describe how it can also be used as a general-purpose tool.
