Scala: The Successor to Java?

Language Features, Comparisons with Java, Current and Future Status


What is a Lunch and Learn?

Lunch and Learns are one-hour, casual educational seminars focusing on technical topics and presented by subject matter experts.

About this month's topic - The Scala Language

Scala is language that provides a fusion between object-oriented and functional programming. It runs on the Java VM, and interoperates with Java, but also provides a number of features that Java lacks. For these reasons, interest in Scala has been growing over the past few years. In this presentation, we will discuss the origins of Scala, provide a survey of the language features, and illustrate incorporating Scala within the existing Java environment.

Seminar highlights

  • Overview of Scala: History and Current State
  • Tour of Scala Language Features
  • Java vs. Scala Code
  • Examples Application

Who should attend?

  • Business Executives, Directors and Managers
  • Software Engineers interested in exploring Scala
  • Technical leads
