ScalaBridge Workshop

ScalaBridge Workshop

47 Degrees, in conjunction with Lambda World, is happy to host a free ScalaBridge Workshop designed for women, non-binary people, and all underrepresented populations who are interested in learning Scala.

In this workshop, we’ll take you through the basics of functional programming in Scala, a powerful language that has uses in everything from web applications to data science to large-scale distributed systems. By the end of the day, you’ll have built several doodles, have a basic understanding of functional programming, and a grasp of Scala fundamentals.

This workshop will be held at the 47 Degrees Seattle Headquarters on Sunday, September 16th, 2018. Lambda World Seattle will be held the following two days on September 17 - 18, 2018!

We’re currently accepting students, as well as volunteer mentors for ScalaBridge. While the workshop is free, you must RSVP here (both students and volunteers): ScalaBridge Seattle - Intro to Programming in Scala
