Special guest Alejandro Lujan joins host Drew Ogryzek to discuss the programming language Scala, and the types of problems Scala and functional programming languages are good at solving, versus object oriented languages such as Java.
As a professional trainer and consultant for Lightbend Inc., Lujan brings his expertise in both programming and education to an exciting online game, ScalaQuest. Each level focuses on a topic, from values and expressions, to functions, to Monads. As you progress through the game, there are a number of challenges to solve in code, helping to gain familiarity with the Scala programming language and its key concepts.
