Getting to grips with a new programming language can be daunting, especially if it requires learning a new discipline such as functional programming. In this talk, Sofia and Dave will provide a step-by-step guide to adopting and mastering Scala from two different perspectives: the graduate developer and the visiting consultant.
Sofia Cole is a developer at YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP with eigtheen months’ experience working with Scala. Dave Gurnell is a consultant at Underscore with over a decade’s experience writing functional code. Between them, they will walk you through their experiences at YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP migrating from a legacy Perl monolith to a Scala microservice architecture.
Topics covered will include:
This will be an entertaining and enlightening alternative take on the Scala adoption story. The speakers absolutely promise not to quarrel on-stage (unless the situation particularly demands it).
This talk will be given by Sofia Cole and Dave Gurnell at Scala Days Berlin in Berlin on 17 June 2016.
