DevDays sets Day Of Scala: On Thursday, May 31 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., DetroitDevDays will be presenting a Day of Scala at the Madison, 1555 Broadway, Detroit. Early Bird ticket prices end April 30. You can use the discount code DetDevDays and register now at http://detroitscala.eventbrite.com. Attendees will spend the day learning with Dianne Marsh and Bruce Eckel in a hands on workshop, Scala Koans. To compliment this workshop, two advanced talks will be presented by Daniel Spiewak, Functional Data Structures in Scala and High Wizardry in the Land of Scala. Scala is a language which is both functional and object-oriented. Running on the Java Virtual Machine (JVM), Scala appeals to developers who enjoy a concise powerful language with modern constructs. While programmers are often attracted to Scala for its productivity gains and reduction of boilerplate code, it’s easy to become bewitched by the functional approach.
