ACCU 2011 Introduction to Scala Talk

28 March 2011 Comments off

2 minutes


Hey All

I will giving a presentation at ACCU 2011 Conference in Oxford on 13th April: Introduction to Scala. The conference takes place in Oxford at the Barceló Hotel on the outskirts of the town. Registration is still open last time I check, so if you want to go then do it now.

I examined the full schedule and I see my talk is first one on Wednesday morning at 11am in Cherwell.

I plan to give a fair robust overview of programming in Scala. It will cover Beyond Java the landscape that we all face, some the ideas on the adoption, where the JVM platform is going. It will be technical and the syntax and concepts of Scala will definitely covered. There will be guide to the functional side of the Scala. Above all I will be stressing the Yoda line: “with great powers, comes great responsibility”.

The ACCU has a long history with C/C++ in the past and the over decades this has been distilled with object orientation, agile development, patterns, and generally best practice for programmers. I was originally a member of ACCU for its C/C++ years and years ago. I moved on as we all do. I moved to Java in 1998 and left C++ behind.

It is good to represent the Java platform again in Oxford and I am looking forward to it.

PS: James Gosling has joined Google: Bang Goes The Drum!
