This talk will give you a great starting place on how we can leverage Scala to be a phenomenal programming language.

We will show you how to avoid common pitfalls and beginner mistakes as well as help you get an understanding for idiomatic Scala. While doing so, we'll have a look at common patterns that can make our life much easier both in the small and in the large.

Recommended for all audiences, beginner or intermediate!
