Special Guest Alejandro Lujan of ScalaQuest
Special guest Alejandro Lujan joins host Drew Ogryzek to discus the programming language Scala, the types of problems Scala, and functional programming languages in general are good at solving versus object oriented languages such as Java, for example.
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. Check out the ScalaQuest kickstarter campaign!
