Scala 101: Getting the hang of it
Scala has been generating a considerable amount of buzz in the industry. While exciting, the language can also seem daunting to the uninitiated, with advanced features and new syntax that takes some getting used to. In this workshop we’ll showcase the basics of Scala by building a simple example application.
No prior knowledge in Scala is required, though some experience in a high-level, backend language (Java, C#, Ruby, Python…) is highly recommended; the workshop builds on IntelliJ IDEA Community Edition and the associated Scala plugin.
