It’s no secret that Scala programming can have long compile times. We pay the price for advanced language features that let us write concise programs and eliminate entire classes of bugs.

But I want fast compiles and fancy language features. I want to have my cake, and eat it too.

Usually long compiles are not a big deal. Scala’s compile times have improved a lot over the years. With Scala’s incremental compilation you only need to re-compile the few files you changed, not the entire project. But Continuous Integration servers are not so lucky.
