Innovation & Value with Scala, not because

In this talk I'll share how and why we, a now medium sized Fintech Startup, made the choice for Scala and the JVM. I'll talk about how this choice affected our ability to continuously deliver innovation and value to our business. We'll touch on what innovation even means for us and also explicitly cover how our choice of programming language & technology contributes to our ability to innovate.
