@rorygraves, sent you a reply with my abstract and general outline. There's too much to cover even in a normal talk, so I'll trim it down if the talk gets accepted. Any feedback at all on the bio, abstract, etc. would be much appreciated!
I cc'd @fommil as well so he could get an idea of what the talk could potentially cover. Sam, I'd love to get any feedback you might have as well.
Will probably forward it to @dickwall as well to get one more pair of eyes.
I've had a really rough time getting accepted to talk anywhere, so going to give this one as much editing as possible before I submit.
@dickwall, sent my ScalaSphere abstract to the email you have under github. Would really appreciate any feedback you could give me. Going to try to send it out tomorrow (Saturday) or Sunday at the latest.

@rorygraves, thanks for the feedback! I think I'm going to try merging your recommendations with my initial draft. I like bits and pieces from each. @fommil, I was more concerned with getting accepted than whether or not there was more than one track. It is good to know that I won't have to compete with others if I get accepted, though!

Hehe, I don't think there will be a problem with getting accepted.

How does this sound? @fommil, @rorygraves, @dickwall

Debugging is a powerful technique to aid in software development; so, why is Scala support still stuck in the dark ages? Traditional Java debuggers struggle with Scala's structure and current Scala tooling lacks the advancements in debugging found in other languages!

In this talk, we will venture into the Scala Debugger project. Specifically, we will dive into the core API and its design as well as how it is leveraged in Ensime and other standalone tools. From there, we will discuss a variety of "power features" found in other debug tooling and how they could be adapted for use with Scala. Additionally, we will cover several topics of exploration in the JVM debug space. Finally, we will close with the current state and roadmap for the Scala Debugger project.

Well, looks fine to me. Got to run off to do errands and whatnot, so going to submit what I've got. Thanks, everyone!

If you don't get accepted (which I seriously doubt will happen) I'll talk to Raf
