Overview

Why Learn Scala?

Scala, as the blended name indicates, is a scalable language.  Scala language is built on top of JVM(Java Virtual Machine) and offers all the features of an Object Oriented Programming(Oop).  It has the expressive power of dynamic programming language without compromising on type safety. Scala is described as a multi-paradigm programming language that can express common programming patterns in a concise, elegant, and type-safe way. Scala plays a significant role in Big Data, as the language is used to develop Apache Spark.  There are numerous top companies like LinkedIn, Sony, Twitter, Netflix that use Scala for programming.  According to Payscale, a salary tracking site for IT professions, the biggest winner, which delivers an average pay jump of 22.2 % is Scala, and the average salary of a salary of a Scala developer $137,863, depending upon the number of years of experience.  

In a survey carried out in 2018 by Stack Overflow, 4.4% of the over 100,000 developers in the world used Scala and this number is increasing every day.

Benefits:

Scala has all the advantages of running on a JVM (Java Virtual Machine) like the Java libraries, administrative tools, garbage collection and many more.  The language is more functional and faster compared to Java.

  • The most significant benefit of learning Scala language is a big bolster to your paycheck.   
  • There is a significant demand for Scala programmers and are paid an average salary of $107,143 per annum
  • You can land in one of these top companies if you are an advanced programmer in Scala
  • According to a survey by JetBrains, nearly 5% of software developers use Scala for their projects, and the number is expected to go up by another 4% in the future.  

Organisations can also benefit using Scala for their programming needs.

  • Scala language is an Open Source software, so no extra cost for the company towards obtaining the licenses
  • People from all over the world contribute their research in the Scala community
  • Scala is highly scalable, functional and faster than the traditional Object-Oriented Languages
  • Many top companies are using Scala with Big Data application, Spark.

So, if object-oriented programming is your forte, and you desire a stable career in programming, Scala Training Program will help develop frameworks for a variety of applications, and can hence help you land in a job of your choice.

  • Linearization

Hands-on:

Mix-in traits in a class to use Linearization process.

Learning Objectives:

Learn about Pattern matching; exceptions, tuples.

  • Usage and benefits
  • Catch exceptions
  • Deconstruct tuples

Hands-on:

Implement pattern matching by using exceptions and tuples.

Learning Objectives:

Learn how the mentioned aspects are covered by Scala's standard library.

  • Foundations of encoding runtime aspects with types
