This seminar is based on Joakim's experiences from moving from Java to Scala scala-lang.org/node/960#Joak We will explore how to move from Java to Scala and why. We'll look at things that you will run into sooner rather than later such as Scala's collection APIs, Options and higher order functions and special syntax. You will leave this seminar with good foundation to use Scala in practice; perhaps even in your current Java project and ideally with an appetite to learn more.
Everything you always wanted to know about Scala but were afraid to ask. If you want to be able to optimize your use of the Scala programming language to solve real world problems without explosions, broken thumbs or bullet wounds then this is the session for you. During the presentation there will be a lot of do's and don't's in order to guide you into how to become a better Scala developer. The target audience is intermediate to advanced Scala developers.
The way we build applications is rapidly changing. HTML5, Scala, non-blocking IO, real-time push, and the cloud are welcome advancements in the world of web apps. Play Framework makes using these technologies a pleasure. In this session you will learn how to build next generation applications with Play Framework and deploy those applications on the cloud.
