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 (http://www.meetup.com/Brighton-Java/) 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.
