Scala @ Frugal Mechanic

Last night Tim gave a talk about Scala at the Seattle Tech Startups meeting.

From the Scala website:

Scala is a modern multi-paradigm programming language designed to express common programming patterns in a concise, elegant, and type-safe way.  It smoothly integrates features of object-oriented and functional languages.

At Frugal Mechanic we use Scala for all of our backend processing and for about 50% of our front end (the other 50% is Ruby on Rails).  If you’re interesting in learning more about Scala here are some resources to get you going:

The slides from his talk are available here or from SlideShare:
