April 29 - 30, Boulder, Colorado.
Scala is the fastest-growing language on the JVM, and quite possibly the fastest-growing functional language ever invented. More companies than ever are embracing Scala as their secret weapon to rapidly build high-performing, powerful desktop and server-side applications, with fewer defects than Java and similar languages thanks to declarative coding, an extremely powerful type system, and an automated testing ecosystem second to none (ScalaCheck, Specs, ScalaTest, etc.).
In this two day, hands-on workshop, you will go from knowing nothing about Scala, to being able to proficiently solve complicated problems in an idiomatically Scala way. Every session consists of a 45 minute lecture (with examples, interactive coding, and Q&A), and a 50 minute hands-on exercise in which you pair up and work through a problem with a fellow attendee.
Teachers include highly-experienced Scala developers and committers to the hottest Scala web framework, with collectively more than 10 years experience writing Scala applications.
