Are you a Python Hero and do you want to learn more about Java? Then continue reading! I will discuss issues I’ve seen from a Pythonic viewpoint when I was learning Java. I will also talk about why Java is preferred over Python in some cases.
Scala is jet another programming language in the world of programming languages. Its first version was released in 2001 and was conceptually developed by Martin Odersky, a professor at the EPFL in Switzerland. Fun fact: one of his first projects was called Pizza and was a super set of the Java language. Later on, he developed Scala. The name and logo are easy to explain. First of all, Scala stands for SCalable LAnguage. Another translation: “Scala” means “staircase” in Italian. The logo is based on a particular staircase in one of the buildings of EPFL. Now we have had a decent introduction to Scala, we can start exploring the language itself. So what is Scala all about?
