Scala Programming Language
There are few languages that are equally capable of building simple, one-line expressions and robust, high performance systems. There are even less languages that can function as both object-oriented and functional. Yet Scala, otherwise known as the ’scaleable’ language, can do both impressively well. And guess what? It’s pretty easy to learn. Interested?

Here’s what our Scala Programming Language online course will teach you…

  • Combine OOP and Functional Programming
  • Gain basic proficiency in Scala
  • Get to grips with functional programming
  • Learn a derivative language of Java
  • Understand how to scale your programs efficiently
  • Add a new language to your skill set!
  • Build Scaleable Programs

If you don’t know Java or functional programming, don’t worry – Scala is a perfect transitional language for both. This Scala Programming Language online course will guide you every step of the way, with mini-projects at the end of each section to compound your learning and provide a clear breakdown of the various components that make up the language.

Previous programming experience will certainly help, but it’s not totally necessary. You’ll start right at the beginning by installing Scala and and getting an overview of the variables, constants, and string manipulations. From then on you’ll learn the various facets of Scala, section by section, using the Eclipse Scala IDE throughout. Among other things, you’ll learn the language fundamentals, control flow, functions, classes, file I/O and exception handling.

What is Scala?

Scala is an object-oriented programming language specially designed to be scaleable. However, it is also a functional language, seamlessly blending the most important elements of both, for a powerful, do-it-all tool that can be used for one-line expressions or ’mission critical’ systems alike. It has a concise syntax, and makes an excellent stepping stone to Java.

As one of the most popular functional programming languages out there and one of the most versatile languages across the board, learning Scala is a smart way to upgrade your skills as well as transitioning from object-oriented to functional styles.
