In this session, we will discuss the Scala programming language, and what it has to offer to Spring developers. We will show how to use the framework you know and love in Scala, and also share some tricks to make this even easier.
In recent years, Scala has been gaining traction amongst Java developers. They choose Scala as a compelling alternative for the Java language itself. Amongst its many qualities, Scala runs on the JVM, introduces many interesting new language concepts, and makes it relatively easy to reuse existing Java code. None of the qualities are unique to Scala per se, but the fact remains that Scala is getting more and more interest, perhaps because of its type-safe nature (as opposed to the many dynamic language alternatives available on the JVM).
Topics that we cover in this session are:
