Scala for the Intrigued

Scala for the Intrigued

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

Scala is a statically typed, fully OO, hybrid functional language that provides highly expressive syntax on the JVM. It is great for pattern matching, concurrency, and simply writing concise code for everyday tasks. If you are a Java programmer intrigued by this language and are interested in exploring further, this section is for you. We will go through a rapid overview of the language, look at its key strengths and capabilities, and see how you can use this language for your day-to-day programming. This session will be coding intensive, so be ready for some serious Scala syntax and idioms.

Coding Challenge

April 30 2014

The Cincinnati Android Developers Group is extending its coding challenge to include remote participants this year! The event is April 30 and open to any developers with any skill sets. We will be sharing with each other via Google Hangouts.

The rules are simple, there is a secret project which will be revealed at 6:30. Developers will have 2.5 hours to build an application and then we will present our results. Achievements will be given for particularly interesting implementations.

Last year’s project can be viewed here : https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/17OhSmMCE6sXbbV0Qfc4uhKfx2dNve4CIN-9VRy_QQ4g/edit#slide=id.p

This is not a tutorial or learning session. Please have your development environments set up and ready to go.

Come show what you’ve got! Challenge can be completed by Web, iOS, Android, Desktop or Mobile Platform Developers!
