Rock the JVM! Advanced Scala and Functional Programming

In this course, we will learn the tricks used by the top 1% of Scala developers. You'll write 5000+ lines of Scala code yourself, with guidance, and you will become a rockstar.

This course is for Scala programmers who need to design complex, scalable systems, or need to customize existing tools (e.g. Spark) or write their own.

Why mastering Scala:

  • it's the hottest language based on the Java Virtual Machine - the number of Scala jobs has exploded, but demand is even higher
  • it offers significantly higher pay (> 20%) than same-level Java positions
  • the top Scala devs are paid 2x, 10x, even more.
  • it's incredibly fun - once tasted Scala, you'll never want to get back
  • you will not have any trouble using some of the latest technologies - Spark, Akka and more

I like to get to the point and get things done. This course

  • deconstructs advanced Scala concepts into the critical pieces you need
  • selects the most important ideas and separates them into what's simple but critical and what's powerful
  • sequences ideas in a way that "clicks" and makes sense throughout the process of learning
  • applies everything in live code
  • The end benefits are still much greater:

    • a completely new level of skill with the Scala language
    • significant bump in salary when you switch to Scala - return on investment for this course >100x in the first year alone.
    • more enjoyable work - Scala is fun.
    • future-proof skills - you'll be able to work with some of the cutting edge technologies (Spark, Akka etc)

    This course is for established programmers with experience with Scala and with functional programming at the level of the Rock the JVM Scala beginners course. I already assume a solid understanding of general programming fundamentals. If you've never coded before, this course is not for you.

    The course is comprehensive, but you'll always see me get straight to the point. So make sure you have a good level of focus and commitment to become a badass programmer.

    I believe both theory and practice are important. That's why you'll get lectures with code examples, real life Scala code demos and assignments, plus additional resources, instructions, exercises and solutions. At the end of the course, you'll have written thousands of lines of Scala.

    I've seen that my students are most successful - and my best students work at Google-class companies - when they're guided, but not being told what to do. I have assignments waiting for you, where I offer my (opinionated) guidance but otherwise freedom to experiment and improve upon your Scala code.

    Definitely not least, my students are most successful when they have fun along the way.

    So join me in this course and let's rock the JVM.

    What people are saying

    According to other learners, here's what you need to know

    type system in 4 reviews

    Course very intensive and useful, type system is explained very clearly and deeply, a must for a real scala programmer.

    I think the sections on the advanced type system stuff is quite good (especially the Path Dependent types and F-Bounded Polymorphism), and I have learned a number of things I didn't know you could do.

    course as well in 3 reviews

    And it easily takes an already established Kotlin/Swift developer into deep diving in Scala But I think an extra advanced course should be made: - Advanced type system (like the type operators like >:> and how you could implement your own) - Meta Programming (not needed much) - More Advanced concurrency, like problems with lock-free operations, common lock-free implementations, and how to use already Scala provided lock-free collections and Java ones (like the ConcurrentSkipList) Finished Advanced course as well.

    I expect he would be having spark course as well in future, I can say nothing but great!
