There is a CJUG (Chicago Java Users Group) meeting December 16th, 2008 from 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM. Dean Wampler will be giving a presentation on Scala.
Topic: The Seductions of Scala
Scala is a new, statically-typed language for the JVM. Its advantages over Java include a succinct syntax, an improved object model and full support for functional programming (FP). In this code-heavy talk, Iâ€™ll show why Scala is so seductive, how it can improve your productivity, and why it might replace Java as the de facto language for the JVM.
