Denys is the author of Scala 2.11's quasiquotes, a project aimed at making AST manipulation a pleasure. He is also an active contributor to scala/scala repository, hacking on compiler internals, reflection API and macros. At the moment he works as intern at Typesafe researching ways to introduce referential transparency and hygiene concepts to Scala compiler and macro system.
This workshop is going to be a follow-up for my "What Are Macros Good For?" talks at Scalapeño and Scala eXchange. The talks introduced a number of popular macro techniques that tackle code generation, static checks and DSLs, focusing on high-level design and omitting implementation details. The workshop will be dedicated to implementation details of some of those techniques, identifying potential pitfalls and providing solutions and explanations.
