Scala Programming

Abstract

Scala is a type safe programming language that runs on-top of the JVM.
Scala was tagged as the ‘long time replacement for Java”.
Scala is both object-oriented and functional thus allowing developers to easily express themselves using powerful tools without losing performance.
By the end of the course the students will know the Scala language, how to use it, the correct patterns and will also have extensive hands-on experience which is crucial when learning a new language.
