August 7th: An Introduction to Scala

The next Brighton Java session is on August 7th at the Skiff from 7pm onwards, and will be an introduction to the Scala programming language:

"Dave Gurnell and Richard Dallaway from Underscore present a brief introduction to Scala - a powerful programming language for the JVM. In the talk, the speakers introduce Scala from a Java programmer's perspective, and show how its support for object-oriented and functional programming styles can provide a smooth transition to greater productivity and code reliability."

As usual, we'll be open from 7 for drinks and chat, with the talks starting a little after 7:30pm. Beer and snacks have been kindly provided by CodingCraft. We're open to people of all abilities and especially welcome any first-timers.

    Enjoyed it. Pity about not having enough time to cover all the other features. Another time perhaps. Thanks for the talk.

    Good mix of theory and practise. The 'worksheet' feature was great for poking around during the code demos! Thanks, guys.
