There was so many great talks to learn from at Scala Days New York including this talk from Software Engineer, Marina Sigaeva on 'Scala is for Everyone'. Catch up if you missed out here!
'We tend to think that programming in Scala is something so complicated that it requires special preparation or CS degree. Many think of software engineers as of people stuck in their computers watching running letters on their black screens.
We'll see results of people with a little or no CS background adopting the Scala language on workshops, kids understanding FP basis. I'll tell you how we, as a community, do it here in Australia, and why it's important.
It's not a secret knowledge if we all try to make it easier to understand for others.
Anyone who has a desire can learn Scala.'
