In June this year the Guardian served over 1 billion page views using applications built with Scala. In this talk, you will explore the team's approaches to teaching Scala to a department of 80 engineers, hiring developers with the right skills, how we migrated our applications from Java and the advantages the language has brought.

There is much to learn from this talk whether you are new to the language, or you are part of a team that is looking to adopt it and if you are experienced in Scala and would like to push its adoption in your workplace.

The Call for Papers is now open for Scala eXchange 2017! Submit your talk for the chance to join a stellar line-up of experts on stage. Find out more.
