This month we are back at CodeNode where we will be joined by Rory Graves and Enric Sangra. Sign up for this event on the Skills Matter web site, not on! ( --- RORY GRAVES: MAKING SCALAC FASTER - HOW HARD CAN IT BE? Rory will invite us on a fun an interesting walk through optimisation and measurement in ScalaC. Full abstract forthcoming. --- ENRIC SANGRA: THERE AND BACK AGAIN: JAVASCRIPT TO SCALA Two years ago I got into an adventure to learn Scala. Although the road seemed arduous and complicated, I quickly realised there were some similarities between how Javascript was being advocated and the main Scala principles. In this talk, I want to explain what helped me learning this new language and while doing so, which concepts can be taken back from it. Are monads something complex? Do we need to fully understand them to write Scala? Could we handle errors in a better way in Javascript? There (from Javascript to Scala) - Why Scala? - The functional basis - Don't be afraid of the cats And back again (from Scala to Javascript) - Being pure - Types - Error handling and monadic structures --- Refreshments will be provided by eSynergySolutions.
