herding cats. This is a log of me going through Cats, a functional programming library for Scala that is currently experimental and under active development. I'll try to follow the structure of learning Scalaz that I wrote in 2012 (!). Cats' website says the name is a playful shortening of the ...

Is Scala's cake pattern of merit when writing heterogeneous data source micro  services?
In a previous post, I compared Scala and Clojure when it came to processing big data. In this post, I am comparing Scala and Clojure in the world of micro-services. Earlier, I had written a rudimentary news feed service in Clojure. Recently, I re-implemented the same news feed service in Scala.

this article and the last one start talking about Scala more http://scabl.blogspot.com/2015/05/aeddd-12.html
In the previous essay of the Advancing Enterprise DDD series, we saw difficulties emerge in maintaining intra-aggregate constraints. These difficulties arose due to the mutability of our entities, and the Java collections the...

TIOBE Index: Scala jumps to 25...

"Another interesting move this month concerns Scala. The functional programming language jumps to position 25 after having been between position 30 and 50 for many years. Scala seems to be ready to enter the top 20 for the first time in history."
TIOBE Index for April 2015. April Headline: Java back at the top! Java is back at the top of the TIOBE index after one and half year. Androids ongoing success is probably the major reason for Java's revival. The Java language has been in slow decline for many years now, mainly due to its waning ...

We're almost there, Scala-Italy 2015 is around the corner.

We've been positively surprised by the great response, which means that the event was sold-out in just a couple of days.

At least, there's good news for everyone who didn't make it: the talks will be recorded, so you too won't miss the opportunity to enjoy the great talks available.

Not a Scala topic but meaningful for practitioners of FP. Renowned computer scientist Paul Hudak, one of the designers of the Haskell programming language, died of leukemia this week.

Jörg Höhne (dr2jh)

Misc. Dialog & Discussion  - 
 
+Sebastian Nozzi  asked some days ago about editor/IDE preferences. After thinking some nights about this question another question raised for me: What are the key features currently missing to support Scala in any IDE/editor?
I also count a feature missing if it is not implemented properly hence not running stable. Scala is still behind the maturity of Java IDEs/editors and it is frustrating working with a programming language without proper coding support (in addition to the recent language changes). I think Scala will be much more be accepted if proper tools exist.
So let us collect some features and maybe some poor souls are able to code our requirements into an IDE/editor plugin.

+jilen nil I agree with you. But +Jörg Höhne also has a point. It's a shame that there is no proper IDE support (as in: relatively bug free - and I mean ScalaIDE, not IntelliJ).

The sad thing is that both of these problems have the same cause: the complexity of the language.

AngularJS via Scala.JS

You can choose from (at least?) two possible implementations:

https://github.com/greencatsoft/scalajs-angular

https://github.com/jokade/scalajs-angulate

I have not used them, but I find the idea of using a testable, type-safe, refactorable AngularJS on the client (possibly sharing coding between server and browser) very compelling.

#scala   #scalajs   #angularjs   #typesafe

Compared to Dart, Scala-js seems to be more interoperable with javascript.

For example, with Scala-js it's possible to use AngularJS through API façade.  With Dart, you need to use AngularDart, a new implementation of Angular.

I don't think Eclipse nor ScalaIDE for Eclipse is dying. The poll doesn't allow voting for more than one entry. As such, I chose to select IntelliJ as I tend to use it just slightly more than ScalaIDE. So, the poll isn't accurately representing my particular use.

I'm very interested in akka-streams, and there's been talk about streams implementations on scala.js, but nothing's out there yet I don't think.

MapR has posted a Forrester report entitled "Apache Spark is Powerful and Promising". Unfortunately you have to share your email to get the report, but it is a decent business level overview, useful if one is trying to propose the platform to a client or management.
