ScalaBridge Workshop

ScalaBridge workshops are intended for people from underrepresented populations who are interested in learning Scala.

Note: You do not have to be a woman to be underrepresented in tech. Diversity comes in many forms: race, gender, age, religion, culture, sexual orientation, socioeconomic background, etc. If at any point, you feel excluded from any ScalaBridge event, please do not hesitate to reach out to @ScalaBridge.

What is a ScalaBridge workshop?

ScalaBridge workshops are usually one-day long events, which will take students through the basics of functional programming in Scala using the Creative Scala tutorial. By the end of the workshop, students will have built several “doodles” using Creative Scala and have a basic understanding of functional programming and Scala fundamentals.
