Image 2021 03 24 T11 59 57

Scala 3 and its new compiler ‘Dotty’ have been eight years in the making. And with the release of a developer’s preview, Scala 3 will be ready to ship for production use in the next few months. This is an exciting time for Scala developers. Lots of new features and improvements will allow you to build innovative apps to meet the business challenges of the future. At the same time, new features – and changes to the existing language – means retraining and unlearning some of the techniques you currently use.

The new changes might seem daunting but we are here to reassure you.

We have created a free downloadable documentoutlining the changes the new update will bring, looking at how these changes will affect you, as well as any common challenges developers, including Julien Truffaut, Adam Fraser and Michael Pilquist, have encountered and how to overcome them, followed by a section on how to up-skill.

This multi-page document is split into three sections: What has changed? What does this mean? And How to up-skill? With quotes from contributors, data from Software Mill and helpful resources; everything you need to know about Scala 3 is in one place - think of this as your handbook, written in a style as if someone is right there with you.

This will be followed by more specific articles, examining some of these topics in more detail, including code examples.

These articles will arrive straight to your inbox, if you subscribe by downloading the paper through the link below.
