Scala is both object-oriented and functional with lots of syntactic sugar and features that all the cool kids are wanting. Lots of people really love Scala and lots of people don’t… As a team we’ve been working with and learning Scala for about six months. In this presentation we’d like to share Scala killer features, the challenges with integrating Scala into our team and when Scala is right for your team.
