Workshop Description

This is a Scala programming event. Some programming knowledge is expected, but no advanced knowledge of Scala is necessary.

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 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 several doodles, have a basic understanding of functional programming, and a grasp of Scala fundamentals.
