This workshop is intended to reach out to women and non-binary people who are interested in learning Scala! We are emphatically queer & trans inclusive!
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 a bot and have a basic understanding of functional programming.
