Scala lang combines object-oriented programming and functional programming into one high-level language. Now, Scala v2.13 is almost here. The first 2.13 release candidate is out and available for your perusal. Scala 2.13.0-RC1 adds collection changes, improved JDK 12 compatibility, compiler changes, and much more.
Scala may have started off as an alternative for Java, but it’s developed into a popular programming language in its own right. This week, we take a look at some of our favorite IDEs and text editors for Scala.
Instead of asking developers to learn a new IDE or build tool, is it possible to ship tools that integrate with a preexisting workflow? Scala’s new Build Server Protocol suggests that it is indeed possible.
Previously, we had a close look at the results of the 2018 JetBrains’ State of Developer Ecosystem survey with a focus on Java. Here, we present you the most interesting and fun highlights on a number of languages and technologies.
In such a vast and rich ecosystem such as Scala’s, it is often difficult to decide what is the best library or build tool choice for a certain project. Here, Manuel Bernhardt gives a quick tour of build tools in Scala in order to help you pick the right tool for your project.
It’s time to take a look at the hot list for the first quarter of 2018. Blockchain and Tensorflow lead the way, but there are some surprises further down the list. Who’s in, who’s out, and what should freelancers focus their energies on?
Big changes on the popular programming language index, as Scala leaps upwards to crack the top twenty. It’s not the only major adjustment for May’s TIOBE Index, as Google’s re-indexing causes titanic shifts for Go, R, and Swift.
Scala 2.13 may be a few months away, but the future is looking bright for 2.14 and beyond. We check in to see the state of Scala and where this popular JVM language is heading. It’s still not set in stone, but keep early 2020 free for Scala 3!
Udash is a Scala framework that promises to make web developing as safe as possible. Here, we have a look at some advantages and disadvantages of Udash.
Scala fans rejoice! Markus Hauck has created an exhaustive cheat sheet for Scala developers. This masterwork has everything. So dive right in, the water’s fine!
Twitter is home to some of the biggest Scala codebases on the planet. So it’s no surprise that a group of Twitter engineers have come up with an experimental new Scala compiler aimed solely at improving compiler speed.
Big news from IBM and Lightbend this week: these two joined forces together to build a brand new toolchain for AI development for Java and Scala developers.
Cheat sheets are a godsend when you don’t know something – and that will happen no matter how well-prepared you are, which is why these cheat sheets might come in handy. And since we’re here to learn more about programming languages, why not dive deeper into the JVM universe? It will be fun, I promise.
