A session on Functional Programming concepts using Scala. This session is more focussed on functional programming concepts rather than Scala.

    We missed out a important concept in Scala, pattern matching using 'case classes'. Do have a look into it if you are starting out with scala. It was a wonderful session, looking fwd for more!

    I want to know the way of connecting Scala Application with Microsoft MS SQL Server 2008 R2.
    Will any body can explain it?

    September 13, 2013

    • Amitabh

      have not used ms sql server but if it supports jdbc, it should work fine with scala.

    • Amitabh

      also stackoverflow may be more helpful

    This session is going to cover basic principles of Functional Programming as I mentioned in the Agenda before. Agenda:
    - Why Functional Programming
    - Imperative vs Functional Programming
    - Characteristics
    - Higher Order Functions
    - Currying
    - Tail Recursion

    There will be coding examples using Scala while discussion these topics. Eg., Writing Higher Order Functions in Scala.

    Will this be a hands on session?

    I'm novice to both scala n functional programming. Just wanted to know if my participation is ok....

    • Amitabh

      Hi Vinodh, contrary to popular belief, Scala programmers are more social and communicative compared to other programmers. They are also cooler. Im sure everyone will be happy to "convert" another newbie to Scala :-)

      Scala programmers are also very modest :)

    Great to see this finalized! We'll all be there

    September 10, 2013

  • Chinababu I.

    Hi I spoke to Ahimanikya now and finalized the meet up on 14th 3pm. Address is above.

    September 10, 2013

  • Ahimanikya S.

    Guys - you can use BAL either in Koramangala or JP Nagar - Whoever originated this call me at[masked]

    We have been doing all past meetups at BAL (bangalorealphalab.in)

    September 10, 2013

  • Murali

    @Asko it is at 11 AM

    September 8, 2013

  • Asko K.

    What time is the Mathematica meetup scheduled?

    September 7, 2013

  • Murali

    14th is good, location - our office near forum? (it is here - http://infratab.in/#contact).

    4 of us were having a meetup for functional programming in Mathematica on 14th at our office, we can club this event with it, what say? @Chinababu @Asko @Kalanidhi?


    @Gautam one more in 2-3 weeks, say at your office in HSR? @Rahul?

    1 · September 7, 2013

  • Chinababu I.

    Ok. I think I gave more options. Let us see how many are Ok on 14th? Please everybody who is interested let us know.

    September 5, 2013

  • Chinababu I.

    I am available on 8th Sept and any Saturday or Sunday after 8th.
    ie., 14, 15, 21, 22, 28, 29 of September.

    My experience setting up Helsinki Scala Club last spring was that it's not easy to agree on event timing. On first, we got 10+ people. On second, only 3. I suggest the invitor to punch in a certain time, and see how many can do that. At least with us, trying to poll preferences and available slots proved too difficult (Meetup.com could give better tools for that!).

    on 14th I'm planing to attend barcamp, can we push this to other dates

    September 5, 2013

  • Rahul M T.

    Can we have it post 15th september? I really need to attend and can arrange the venue in my office near to HSR BDA Complex.

    September 5, 2013

  • Murali

    @Asko 14th sounds good. @Kalanidhi? Others?

    September 5, 2013

  • Kalanidhi

    I am ready to attend the session, but i want to know the Session date

    September 5, 2013

  • Asko K.

    In Bangalore only on Sat 14th, so probably not the day you want to arrange the gathering. Can give my experiences on Scala by email but it's pretty much the normal stuff (= I like it, it's clear, code lines are less, learning curve is there but doable, it makes me feel more powerful as a coder - compared to i.e. C++).

    I found <a href="http://www.codecommit.com/blog/scala/scala-for-java-refugees-part-2">this blog</a> useful when getting to Scala. Takes a "better Java" approach to bringing you piece by piece into the language. Good for tipping one's toe. ;)

    I have a small 400sft office near Forum Mall, Koramangala. Open to the idea of hosting this meetup if you guys are up for it.

    Hi, currently visiting India until mid Sept. If the dates are suitable (= I'm in Bangalore), I'll be coming. Some 1yr experience in Scala.
