Bruce and I are both at OSCON, in Portland, this week. This offers us a rare opportunity to work together in person, and that’s always fun (and productive).
We presented a half-day tutorial, Introduction to Scala, from Atomic Scala yesterday. We were surprised that we had a repeat tutorial attendee (hi John!) who had previously joined us at the CodeMash tutorial last January. We got up to the Class Exercises in the book, and we hope that attendees will continue independently. If you attended, we would love your feedback.
I’ll be speaking tomorrow, “Sneaking Scala through the Back Door” and Bruce has 2 talks on Thursday, “Rethinking Errors: Lessons from Scala and Go” and “Reinventing Business”. Both of us will be participating in OSCON Office Hours, which give attendees an opportunity to come talk to us. If you’re at OSCON, we would love to talk to you! We even have a few copies of the book with us!
If you aren’t at OSCON, consider attending the Scala Summit in Crested Butte August 19-21.
