Scala Pattern Matching, Interoperability, and Concurrency

Programmers with some experience of programming in another language looking to get a start in Scala


Expected Duration
99 minutes

Scala mixes programming paradigms, and so presents a challenge to programmers coming from any other language. This course explores the use of pattern matching, Java interoperability, and concurrency.
