Evolution, revolution, revelation... Trench stories in moving a team to Scala

10th December 2015 in London at Business Design Centre

There are 37 other SkillsCasts available from Scala eXchange 2015

SkillsCast coming soon.

Sofia will talk about joining a team in the midst of their technical evolution, as they move from a monolith to a service orientated architecture, from infrequent and manually tested releases to a continuous delivery platform, and from older technology choices to a modern architecture, using Scala and associated tools.

Discussing the path to change, Sofia will cover:

  • The tactical and targeted use of hack days, spikes, workshops and ad-hoc discussions

  • Ongoing challenges that are still unresolved (e.g. strategies for error handling)

  • Shared joys and pains from different developers from disparate backgrounds

  • Repeated mistakes and how to avoid them

Sofia will finish by summing up her experience with Scala as the first language she's used in industry, and the most important things she has learnt in the last six months.
