You want to learn how to make sentences that are useful for everyday
life, and you're going to compare your new language with your mother
tongue. It works in the same way when you learn a new programming
language. After you've learned the syntax, you want to learn common
constructs and you'll want to compare it to the language you already

Scala is one of the most popular new languages on the JVM, and is going
to be more and more important in the coming years. This talk is for the
busy Java developer who's interested in Scala and who wants to get
beyond just learning the syntax.

In this talk, you will learn how Scala compares to Java, and how you do
common tasks the Scala way, so that you can get going with Scala in a
practical way. You will also learn about the principles behind Scala's
features, so that you really understand what they mean and how you can
use them effectively.
