Scala Training Overview

Accelebrate’s Scala training teaches Java developers how to build applications using Scala. Scala is a programming language built on top of the JVM that integrates functional programming with Java’s object-oriented programming model, with a goal of enabling developers to build applications more rapidly and efficiently.
