Senior Java to be Scala Developer


You are a great Java developer, not doubt about that.

And because of that you often struggle with the boilerplate, limited expressiveness of the Java language, overall mutability, exceptions and extinguish a NullPointerException fire. You would love to try this new async way of building applications but you are stucked with the completely synchronous Java libraries. Or maybe you just want to know more about Typeclasses, Tagging, Validation and other cool features from functional world? Wouldn’t be nice to learn all of this in real world examples?
