Is Fantom light years ahead of Scala?

Abstract

Fantom is a production-ready programming language that compiles to the JVM and Javascript. On occasion, I've described Fantom as being 'in some ways light years ahead of Scala'. But how do I justify that? Why do I consider the ideas and direction of Fantom to be a more appealing view of the future than Scala? In this talk I'll summarize the features of Fantom and try to explain my opinion of why its strengths are important.
