Programming languages are about tradeoffs; Python or Ruby are concise but not performant, Java or Go are performant but not concise. Scala is a language that offers the best of both worlds: conciseness and elegance together with performance and scalability. This lightning talk will give you a brief tour of what it's like using the Scala language, and how you can write code that scales from your first one-liner in the REPL to complex real-world use cases
