Escape the code jungle with Functional Programming in Scala

Meet an object-oriented language with a sane dose of functional programming paradigms. Scala means SCAlable LAnguage - but what kind of scale are we talking about here? It means you can use the same language for projects of varying complexity.

With Scala you can:

  • Write a one liner script which resizes images into thumbnails.
  • Create a bird dating website and allow your canaries to chat over websockets.
  • Dispatch billions of messages per hour. Tweet. Tweet tweet.

We'll cover the basic Typesafe stack:

  • 30m intro to Scala
  • 15m build ecosystem
  • 45m Play around
  • 45m scale up with Akka

There are many learning curves from which you can choose your path to this world. So, we're here to show you a glimpse of some of them and give you a prod in the right direction ;)

Choose Functional, choose Scala, choose Life.
