Fast Track to Scala Training Course
Markana, in partnership with Typesafe, is pleased to offer this two-day course, designed by Martin Odersky, the creator of the Scala programming language, and Heiko Seeberger, a recognized Scala expert, will give you an excellent grounding in Scala.
It is intended to enable developers or development managers, who are experienced programmers in Java or other production languages like C++, C# or Ruby, to confidently start programming in Scala. No previous knowledge of Scala is assumed. Although intense, the course ensures you will have a solid understanding of the fundamentals of the language, the tooling and the development process as well as a good appreciation of the more advanced features. If you already have Scala programming experience, then this course could be a useful refresher.
After having participated in this course you should:
- be a competent user of Scala constructs in application code
- know and be able to apply the functional programming style in Scala
- know how to use the fundamental Scala tools
- be confident to start using Scala in production applications
For twelve years, Dan has been doing his best to write and help others write some damn fine code. Dan is author of Marakana's Scala Fundamentals course, the latest addition the the Marakana course catalog. Before joining Marakana, he worked as a Developer Advocate at Atlassian, teaching developers how to write plugins for Atlassian's collaboration and development tools. Prior to Atlassian, Dan worked in both engineering and sales for Coverity, helping developers maintain code quality using Coverity's sophisticated static and dynamic analysis tools.
Between Coverity, Atlassian and Marakana, his tutorials have covered C/C++ best practices, Java web development (including Maven, Spring, OSGi, Guava, and RESTful web services using Jersey and Jackson), front-end development using jQuery, and functional programming with Scala.
Dan's latest hobby is lurking on StackOverflow as user "mergeconflict," waiting for tricky Haskell and Scala language questions to jump on. More about Dan Rosen...
