Presented by Jan Machacek. In his Spring & Scala tutorial, Jan will start by comparing Scala to the other languages on the Java platform. Find out that Scala code gets compiled to regular Java bytecode, making it accessible to your Spring code. You will also learn what functional programming means and how to see & apply the patterns of functional programming in what we would call enterprise code. Jan will gently introduce functions, higher-order functions and demonstrate building rich type systems.

Who should attend:

All traditional Spring & Java developers who are curious about Scala. You don't need any Scala knowledge, but some Spring experience will be very helpful.
