Skills Gained

  • What Scala is and how it differs from other languages such as Java or Python
  • Key Scala concepts such as data types, collections and program flow control
  • How to implement both imperative and functional programming solutions in Scala
  • How to work with Scala classes, packages, and APIs

Prerequisites

Prior knowledge of Hadoop is not required. Since this course is intended for developers who do not yet have the prerequisite skills writing code in Scala, basic programming experience in at least one commonly-used programming language (ideally Java, but Python, Ruby, Perl, C, C++, PHP, or Javascript will suffice) is assumed. NOTE: This course does not teach Big Data concepts, nor does it cover how to use Cloudera software. Instead, it is meant as a precursor for one of our developer-focused training courses that provide those skills, such as Developer Training for Spark and Hadoop I or Developer Training for Apache Spark.
