Workshop: Functional programming with Scala

This workshop aims at focusing on introducing the idea of functional programming more than Scala itself. There will be 4 sessions on every Wednesday, same time and venue on the following dates:-
  • 3rd Feb
  • 17th Feb
  • 24th Feb
  • 2nd Mar
Participants for this workshop are recommended to have the following prerequisites:
  • Minimum 2 years of experience in any programming languages ( Javascript, PHP etc. )
  • Have an IDE installed before coming to the workshop, IntelliJ would be an ideal one
Topics that will be covered are:
  • What is functional programming, why it matters, where does it come from? (And code samples using Scala, will attempt javascript samples as well)
  • Why Scala ? Why is it fun ? - Introducing the language and its features, getting setup for working with it, culminate in a hello world
  • More language features and OO programming in Scala
  • Functional programming - Data structures and constructs in Scala
Note that these sessions are really meant for getting the conecpts in rather than build up a working Scala programming knowledge. As such, the knowledge aquired can be proted across to other popular languages like C#, Java 8 & 9, Javascript and possibly Ruby/Python.
