Overview

Why Learn Scala?

Scala is among the most popular programming languages and powers the code of several top websites around the world including Twitter, LinkedIn and The Guardian. This workshop gives you a comprehensive overview of the language and helps you dive deep into its concepts and fundamentals through a practical, hands-on tutorial.

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 a 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.  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 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 runs on top of the JVM (Java Virtual Machine) and hence offers all the associated benefits like the Java libraries, administrative tools, garbage collection and much 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 who 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 there is no extra cost associated with obtaining the licenses
  • People from all over the world contribute their research in the Scala community
  • Scala is highly scalable, functional and faster than traditional Object-Oriented Languages
  • Many top companies are using Scala with the Big Data application, Spark.

So, if object-oriented programming is your forte, and you desire a stable career in programming, Scala Training Program should be your ideal choice. Create frameworks for a variety of applications, and master Scala best practices to land the job of your choice.

Everything was well organized. I would like to refer to some of their courses to my peers as well. The customer support was very interactive. As a small suggestion to the trainer, it will be better if we have discussions in the end like Q&A sessions.
