About the talk
The talk will begin by covering the Scala syntax briefly and then delving into some of the nicer features (type inference, functional programming, etc). It will then concentrate on some specific things like Option and Case Classes to hopefully highlight some immediate and easy wins over Java.
About the speaker
Charles O'Farrell has been working at Mincom for 4 years, updating their legacy COBOL systems to Java and Flex. He's hoping to introduce Scala into the mix at soon as is humanly possible. :)
