Scala Basics And Hello World Example

Basics 1) Scala integrates features of both object-oriented and functional programming. Scalability = Functional Programming + Objects 2) Scala has the same compilation model as Java and C#, namely separate compilation and dynamic class loading, so that Scala code can call Java libraries, or .NET libraries in the .NET implementation. To the JVM, Scala code and Java code are indistinguishable. ...
