Scaling the Use of Scala: lessons learned from a year of using Scala on a larger project
Adopting Scala on a larger project with a bigger team is a different experience from using Scala on smaller projects with small teams. The expressiveness of Scala, the ability to achieve the same result in many different ways is one of the languages strengths, but it also poses a unique set of challenges for bigger teams with varying levels of Scala experience. This talk will approach some of the challenges and pitfalls based on the experience of a long term real life project/programme. The talk will hopefully give the audience a feel for how to get Java developers cross-skilled into Scala, common Scala project challenges as a team grows and how to solve them, stylistic choices, patterns- and anti-patterns that may be useful to be aware of.
We will, as always, also be heading to the Slaughtered Lamb pub afterwards.
