The Joy of Scala

This talk will expose you to the amazing world of Scala and Functional Programming. Beware, after trying it, you’ll never look back. While the maturity and wide range of tools Java offer is great, the language doesn’t seem to keep up with market requirements as other languages do.

This session will include many Java vs. Scala code samples.
In Scala the code is much more concise, less ceremonious, immutable by default, combines functional with object oriented, seamlessly interoperates with Java and the JVM ecosystem, and many software engineering patterns are already baked into the language. Most importantly – Scala is FUN.
