Workshop Description

ScalaBridge is a fun and friendly introduction to Scala, with an explicit goal of encouraging diversity in the Scala community. To coincide with Scala Days, a ScalaBridge will be held in Copenhagen at AC Bella on Tuesday, 30th of May, from 9am to 5pm. It's completely free to attend.

We ask that attendees have a bit of programming experience (any language is fine) and are from a group that is underrepresented in the Scala community, broadly interpreted. If you are an experienced Scala developer, and interested in helping out as an instructor, we also want to hear from you.

ScalaBridge has three goals:

  • To have fun! Always the most important goal at ScalaBridge. Our curriculum is based around expressing your creativity through computer graphics. It is explicitly designed for people who don't have the science / engineering / maths background that is typical of programmers.
  • To show that programming is a systematic task. If you follow some recipes you can't go wrong.
  • To set you up for future learning. We want to provide you with enough background that you can pick up other programming material (and particularly functional programming material) and not feel completely lost.

Curriculum

We will use Creative Scala as our curriculum for the course. Please download a copy beforehand (it is free) and if possible work through the installation.
