Exploring the Language

Let’s take a look at some facts about Scala and its philosophies.

Scala first appeared in 2004 on the Java platform. Then came along version 2.0 in March of 2006. The name Scala is a portmanteau of the words scalable and language, highlighting its ability to grow with its users’ demands. As a language, it is both object-oriented and functional. It is also language-interoperable with Java- source code in that Scala compiles to Java bytecode, which makes way for an executable that runs on the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). These languages also share libraries and use a curly-brace syntax.

Some among features that often amuse developers are of the likes of currying, type influence, immutability, lazy evaluation, and pattern matching.
