Workshop description

You’ve likely heard about Scala already. Maybe some even tried it out and decided it wasn’t for them. Others may have stumbled upon blogs discussing highly abstract topics and ran screaming the other way. It doesn’t have to be that way. This workshop will be a gentle introduction to Scala where we’ll progress through a series of exploratory exercises.

The exercises will explore the basics of the language and the most common programming constructs / idioms. This workshop will also cover immutability, case classes, pattern matching, collections, closures and higher order functions. Students will leave knowing what Scala is, how to write small programs, object-oriented vs functional programming, and enough knowledge to continue further study.
