Workshop Description

This workshop is intended to reach out to women, non-binary people, and all underrepresented populations who are interested in learning Scala.

In this workshop, we'll take you through the basics of functional programming in Scala, a powerful programming language. By the end of the day, you'll have built several doodles using Creative Scala, have a basic understanding of functional programming, and a grasp of Scala fundamentals.
