Greater Wisconsin Software Symposium
February 26 - 28, 2010 - Milwaukee, WI
Scala is a very powerful hybrid functional pure object oriented language on the JVM. Scala is known for its conciseness and expressiveness. In this presentation we will look at some common tasks you do everyday in developing applications and see how they manifest in Scala.
We will look at the strengths of Scala from application development point of view. Rather than focusing on the syntax of Scala, we will focus here on Scala idioms and powerful Scala libraries to perform routine tasks.
