Event Details

Course Description and Objectives

This two-day course will give you an excellent grounding in Scala. It is intended to enable developers or development managers, who are experienced programmers in Java or other production languages like C++, C# or Ruby, to confidently start programming in Scala. No previous knowledge of Scala is assumed. Although intense, the course ensures you will have a solid understanding of the fundamentals of the language, the tooling and the development process as well as a good appreciation of the more advanced features. If you already have Scala programming experience, then this course could be a useful refresher.

After having participated in this course you should:


  • be a competent user of Scala constructs in application code
  • know and be able to apply the functional programming style in Scala
  • know how to use the fundamental Scala tools
  • be confident to start using Scala in production applications

The presentation will frequently be mixed with hands-on exercises that give you a good opportunity to try what you have learnt and a chance to clarify your understanding. Therefore it is necessary that you bring your notebook with Java 6 installed.

In his last role he served as the MongoDB Scala evangelist for 10gen; he also developed Casbah, the MongoDB driver for Scala, and architected the integration layer for MongoDB and Hadoop. Brendan now works within Typesafe’s Professional Services team helping Scala, Akka, and Play users better understand and deploy the Typesafe products.
