In association with Scalathon, two sponsors are providing Scala training.

Chariot Solutions

FAST TRACK TO SCALA

This two-day course, designed by Martin Odersky, the creator of the Scala programming language, and Heiko Seeberger, a recognized Scala expert, will give you an excellent grounding in Scala. It is intended to enable developers or development managers, who are experienced programmers in Java or other production languages like C++, C# or Ruby, to confidently start programming in Scala. No previous knowledge of Scala is assumed. Although intense, the course ensures you will have a solid understanding of the fundamentals of the language, the tooling and the development process as well as a good appreciation of the more advanced features. If you already have Scala programming experience, then this course could be a useful refresher.

This course will be given on Thursday, July 19th, and Friday, July 20th, in the Chariot Solutions offices at 515 Pennsylvania Ave, Suite 202, Fort Washington, Pennsylvania.

For more information, including how to register, see the Chariot Solutions course page.

Part of the course are hands- on exercises in which you will build real Akka applications. Code examples and exercises will be written in Scala, so previous experience with Scala is required.

This course will be given on Thursday, July 26th, and Friday, July 27th, at the Quorum.
