This talk will cover a few of the more interesting ones in depth, including how to use them and most importantly why you'd use them over other solutions.

Great video, however I have one question: I keep reading in random places throughout the internet that certain parts of the SPL are buggy or inefficient, is there truth to this? If so can someone point out the areas of the SPL that should be avoided?
