Fascinating talk by Ignacio Cases on Deciphering Maya Hieroglyphic Writing Using Scala from Scala Days 2013.

Mainly talking about the process of recording and analysing Mayan hieroglyphs linguistically, using a system developed in Scala, rather than showing code examples in Scala, but great to see such an unusual use of Scala and FP.


No more Blub for me, thank you, Vicar.
