Someone pointed out to me that the mailing lists have been free of Jovial, fun material lately.  As such, I decided to bring back a few memes to help everyone promote scala at their workplace, or on the interwebs.
Here they are for your enjoyment.

Re: Promote Scala!
Sorry I want to say that the promote are not sexual ,interesting , beauty or simple.

They can not let me enjoy , image or know what is scala.

I means it's better if there are more beauty , interesting, and simple promote?

These let me image a us army poster , but it was War I.

Re: Promote Scala!






I found the best  image of language is ruby which is simple, beauty and sexual.
It can make younger interested.

I think scala should not only try to interest experience developers but also new developers who maybe very young and want cool.

Re: Promote Scala!

Ruby uses a ruby gemstone as a logo
Scala uses a staircase (=scala in Italian) as a logo
So both logos refer to the name.

I think the staircase logo also represents that you can learn scala
step by step from simple to advanced.
A ruby gemstone represents passion and power, it's the king of
gemstones.

Both logos represent what it stands for and are tightly connected to
the name.

Most of them are applicable to Scala, too.

The prose stylings of paulp are occasionally still to be found on scala-internals. I'm awaiting the paulp book on scala, over 1200 pages, with most of the text packed into a series of 593 footnotes.

Re: Promote Scala!
Well ... taking it a bit more seriously. There seems to be interest by some leaders in JUGs "adopting a JSR".

Would it be reasonable for the "Scala community" to adopt a JEP/JSR we care about? E. g. better class file format/closures/tailcalls?

Re: Promote Scala!
Well ... taking it a bit more seriously. There seems to be interest by some leaders in JUGs "adopting a JSR".

Would it be reasonable for the "Scala community" to adopt a JEP/JSR we care about? E. g. better class file format/closures/tailcalls?

Re: Promote Scala!

Scala in my eyes is transformers which is solid(typesafe,immutable),variation(trait,currying) and powerful.
On the other hand, scala is hard to control and touch.

Re: Promote Scala!
As a very new Scala programmer who considers himself a C++ person, I humbly recommend: "Get some JVM dignity by porting to Scala".

Re: Promote Scala!
While that is funny - Scala is actually still part of the 1% (or so)

Wink, wink - nudge, nudge

Re: Promote Scala!

1% of the lines of code written for the jvm?  I could believe that.

Re: Promote Scala!
Think again.
class Foo {  int x = 4;  int y = 3;
  int getX() = {    return x;  }
  void setX(int x) = {     this.x = x;  }
  int getY() = {    return y;  }
  void setY(int y) = {     this.y = y;  }}
or consider a Guava lambda.  Those lines add up FAST!
Peace.  Michael
