Presentation

Scala is a modern programming language used by companies such as Twitter, LinkedIn, and Coursera that lets you do everything from developing websites, creating games, making apps, and more! It also happens to be a great language to get started with programming. In this workshop, we'll start with simple exercises leading up to drawing fractal based graphics, ending with hints on doing even more with Scala. This workshop is targeted for 4th graders and up, so bring in your laptop and a lot of enthusiasm!
