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. :)

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
