Scala - Your First Programming Language - Part 17 - Traits and their superpowers

In this video we will learn about the majority of use cases for traits - interfaces on steroids. We will learn how to add functionality to existing classes, even the ones whose code we cannot access! We will learn how to modify behavior with the "Stackable modifications" pattern, which can also be used to intercept behavior. Most importantly we will learn about linearization - a solution for the issues which commonly arise with multiple inheritance and diamonds.
