Workshop Description

This workshop is intended for anyone who identifies as belonging to a group
that is underrepresented in tech. Attendance of the workshop is free, with food
and drinks provided throughout the day.

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 some fun projects and have a basic understanding of
functional programming.

To attend this event, you should have some familiarity with another
programming language (like Ruby, Python, Java, or Javascript) - but no formal
training required. Students will be separated into different classes based on
the experience level they choose when signing up. If you are completely new to
programming, look out for a future ScalaBridge event when we hope to offer
more-introductory workshops.
