Scala Programing Public- Israel

September 1 @ 9:00 am - September 3 @ 5:00 pm


Scala is a type safe programing language that runs on-top of the JVM.

Scala was tagged as the ‘long time replacement for Java”.

Scala is both object-oriented and functional thus allowing developers to easily

express themselves using powerful tools without losing performance.

By the end of the course the students will know the Scala language, how to use it, the

correct patterns and will also have extensive hands-on experience which is crucial

when learning a new language.
