Scala is one of the relatively few languages that escaped from an academic research lab into widespread industrial usage. This was not something that was planned 10 years ago, when Scala was first announced. In this talk I'll give an overview of the development of Scala from its beginning to today, addressing some questions one might ask when looking back: How did motivations and expectations change? In hindsight, what were the important achievements? What was learned along the way?
