A full day hands on workshop that teaches some of the Scala basics to get you started, then moves on to the Play Framework a web framework that can either use Java or Scala to do anything web (we will be doing Scala). Then we move on to actors and reactive programming using Akka. Bring your thinking caps on because this won’t be for the faint of heart, but it will be fun.
