Scala: Unique features you need to know

Image
Let us start it in layman terms... Why you need Scala... The name Scala stands for “scalable language.” The language is so named because it was designed to grow with the demands of its users. Where Scala can be applied... You can apply Scala to a wide range of programming tasks, from writing small scripts to building large systems.   The real use of Scala... Scala is easy to get into. It runs on the standard Java platform and interoperates seamlessly with all Java libraries. It’s quite a good language for writing scripts that pull together Java components. But it can apply its strengths even more when used for building large systems and frameworks of reusable components. Technically, Scala is a blend of object-oriented and functional programming concepts in a statically typed language. The fusion of object-oriented  and functional programming shows up in many different aspects of Scala; It is probably more pervasive than in any other widely used language.

Scala is an acronym for “Scalable Language” . This means that Scala grows with you. You can play with it by typing one-line expressions and observing the results. But you can also rely on it for large mission-critical systems , as many companies, including Twitter, LinkedIn, or Intel does. To some, Scala feels like a scripting language. Its syntax is a concise and low ceremony; its types get out of the way because the compiler can infer them. There are a REPL and IDE worksheets for quick feedback. Developers like it so much that Scala won the ScriptBowl contest at the 2012 JavaOne conference. At the same time, Scala is the preferred workhorse language for many mission-critical server systems. The generated code is on a par with Java’s and its precise typing means that many problems are caught at compile-time rather than after deployment. ✅ SCALA Quiz Link At the root, the language’s scalability is the result of a careful integration of object-oriented and functional language concepts

What is Scala - Scala's design has been influenced by many programming languages and ideas in programming language research. Beginner Notes on SCALA. In fact, only a few features of Scala are genuinely new; most have been already applied in some form in other languages. Scala's innovations come primarily from how its constructs are put together. At the surface level, Scala adopts a large part of the syntax of Java and C#, which in turn borrowed most of their syntactic conventions from C and C++. Expressions, Statements, and blocks are mostly as in Java, as is the syntax of classes, packages, and imports.  Besides syntax, Scala adopts other elements of Java, such as its basic types, its class libraries, and its execution model. Scala's new version. Scala also owes much to other languages. Its uniform object model was pioneered by Smalltalk and taken up subsequently by Ruby.  Its idea of universal nesting (almost every construct in Scala can be nested inside any o
