Heiko Seeberger is the Director Professional Services at Typesafe. He has been a Scala enthusiast ever since he came to know this beautiful language in 2008. He started his professional career as a software developer in 1993 using programming languages like object-oriented Turbo Pascal, Perth and C++. Since 1998 he has been living almost exclusively in the Java world where he could build deep expertise in technologies for enterprise applications like AspectJ, Spring, Eclipse RCP and OSGi. Soon after he was infected by Scala he started the ScalaModules project, a Scala-based DSL for OSGi, and became a committer to Lift and Akka. Heiko regularly shares his expertise in articles and talks and is the main author of the German Scala book "Durchstarten mit 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.
The presentation will frequently be mixed with hands-on exercises that give you a good opportunity to try what you have learnt and a chance to clarify your understanding. Therefore it is necessary that you bring your notebook with Java 6 installed.
