Invitation to Scala

Here is the material for the talk I gave at the Harvard IQSS’s “Tech talk” lecture series. This is a gentle introduction to the Scala language and to functional programming. As this lecture had quite a few demonstrations, you need to follow the lecture notes and try the commands shown there on a scala REPL in order to get the most of it.

Very big “Thank You” for all the IQSS staff that attended – it was great fun*!
