Scala Functional Programming Essentials Rock the JVM

What you’ll learn

understand Scala code in production environments or open-source projects
think code differently with functional programming
write applications in Scala from scratch
contribute to products and open-source projects written in Scala
skills to start developing with powerful tools on top of Scala: Spark, Akka, Play

Scala Functional Programming Essentials Rock the JVM


some experience with some other programming language – you’ve built something useful that works
computer science fundamentals: memory, running time, how programs compile and run
some Java knowledge is a plus, but not required


Updated for Scala 3! This course is now fully compatible with both Scala 2 and Scala 3.In this course, we will learn the basics of Scala and functional programming, two highly in-demand topics in software industry today. Write 3000+ lines of Scala code yourself, with guidance, through 100+ examples and exercises.Why Scala:it’s currently the hottest language based on the Java Virtual Machine – the number of Scala jobs has exploded, but demand is even higherScala offers significantly higher pay (> 20%) than same-level Java positionsit’s incredibly fun – if you learn Scala, you’ll hardly want to get backit unlocks the doors to some of the latest technologies – Spark, Akka and moreI like to get to the point and get things done. This coursedeconstructs Scala – which is otherwise hard to learn – into the critical pieces you needselects the most important Scala concepts and separates them into what’s simple but critical and what’s powerfulsequences ideas in a way that “clicks” and makes sense throughout the process of learningapplies everything in live Scala codeThe end benefits are still much greater:significant bump in salary when you switch to Scala – return on investment for this course >100x in the first year alone!more enjoyable work – Scala is fun!future-proof skills – you’ll be able to work with some of the cutting edge technologies (Spark, Akka etc)This course is for established programmers with otherwise no experience with Scala language or little to no experience with functional programming. I already assume a solid understanding of general programming fundamentals. If you’ve never coded before, this course is likely not for you.The course is comprehensive, but you’ll always see me get straight to the point. So make sure you have a good level of focus and commitment to become a badass programmer.I believe both theory and practice are important. That’s why you’ll get lectures with code examples, real life Scala code demos and assignments, plus additional resources, instructions, exercises and solutions.I’ve seen that my students are most successful – and my best students work at Google-class companies – when they’re guided, but not being told what to do. I have assignments waiting for you, where I offer my (opinionated) guidance but otherwise freedom to experiment and improve upon your Scala code.Definitely not least, my students are most successful when they have fun along the way!So join me in this course and let’s rock the JVM with Scala!
