Scala at Light Speed

Requirements

  • Existing programming experience with at least one other language

Description

This free course by Rock the JVM gives you a fast-track overview of what the Scala language is capable of. Learn the foundations of Scala in the time it takes to watch a movie.

“I’ve been living under a rock, what’s Scala again?”

Scala is an object oriented and functional language that compiles to JVM bytecode, which is the same format that Java uses. That means you can

  1. access all Java libraries and existing Java code
  2. run Scala on billions of devices which support a JVM

Scala is used by the top companies in the world, including Apple, Adobe, Twitter, Microsoft, Uber, and many, many more. They all use Scala for high-performance critical infrastructure, data analytics and microservices, among other things.

Learning Scala gives you

  • a new mental model about code
  • higher-paid jobs – Scala positions are some of the best paid in the industry
  • more productivity
  • a LOT more fun than “traditional” languages

In this course, we will learn the fundamentals of the Scala language – we will make some analogies to existing programming languages to understand how to write essential code, how to think and approach problems, how to deal with threads and how to use some “magical” structures in the language which you cannot find (almost) anywhere else.

Get started now, it’s free!
