This talk summarizes my PhD research on metaprogramming in Scala. We will start with Scala macros, which introduced language support for metaprogramming into the production compiler, and then discuss their adoption and impact on the Scala community. Following that, we will see how our experience with macros suggested better ways of designing reflection APIs. The presentation is Scala-centric, but features language-agnostic insights.
