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.
We’re back with another pub quiz on the history of another favorite programming language. This time, we’re testing your knowledge about the life and times of Scala. Do you know everything there is to know about this functional language?
Big Data is changing. Buzzwords such as Hadoop, Storm, Pig and Hive are not the darlings of the industry anymore —they are being replaced by a powerful duo: Fast Data and SMACK. Such a fast change in such a (relatively) young ecosystem begs the following question: What is wrong with the current approach? What is the difference between Fast and Big Data? And what is SMACK?
The dominance (not to mention popularity) of Java has remained uncontested for years. Java continues to top almost all the lists of programming languages in respect of popularity, career scope, and industry preference. Java is great because of its versatility, strength and capacity to handle complex tasks. But is there anything better than Java? Can there really be one?
In this article, Vaughn Vernon, author of “Implementing Domain- Driven Design”, “Reactive Messaging Patterns with the Actor Model”, and “Domain-Driven Design Distilled”, will teach you a first approach method to designing microservices, giving you a workable foundation to build on. He will introduce you to reactive software development and summarize how you can use Scala and Akka as a go-to toolkit for developing reactive microservices.
In our latest issue of JAX Magazine, we dive deeper into reactive programming and analyze the most popular JVM language and where we are heading to. After talking to Martin Odersky, the creator of Scala, about the 2.12 version and the current state of this programming language, we invited six Scala developers to weigh in on Scala’s appeal and to express their opinion with regard to Scala’s future.
