A small dedicated team with skilled individuals and aligned goals can accomplish amazing things. That's why Joakim does more and more coaching around programming and software development in general.
wednesday 16:40 - 17:30
This seminar is based on Joakim's experiences from moving from Java to Scala http://www.scala-lang.org/node/960#Joak We will explore how to move from Java to Scala and why. We'll look at things that you will run into sooner rather than later such as Scala's collection APIs, Options and higher order functions and special syntax. You will leave this seminar with good foundation to use Scala in practice; perhaps even in your current Java project and ideally with an appetite to learn more.
