Reading Time: 4 minutes Lists in Scala is the most widely used Scala collection. There are both mutable and immutable version of list. However, we will be using an immutable version of lists.
Reading Time: 5 minutes I have been working on Scala for around 2.5 years now, but still, feel that I have yet to explore a lot in this language. There are still a lot of topics unexplored. One such topic is Monads. I have heard and read about it a lot of times but never actually got a chance to explore it. Recently I came across the term and Continue Reading
Reading Time: 5 minutes In this blog, We will be going to explore how we can use scala collections efficiently . Though, we are taking care of immutability but still something more can be done to make your code more readable and faster. List vs Vector: Vector is a collection with good random access. List is indeed a linked list with very fast append-first operation (::), but the links Continue Reading
Reading Time: 6 minutes Scala Map is a collection of Key-value pair. A map cannot have duplicate keys but different keys can have same values i.e keys are unique whereas values can be duplicate. Maps in Scala are not language syntax. They are library abstractions that you can extend and adapt. Scala provides mutable and immutable alternatives for maps. Class hierarchy for scala maps is shown below: Image Continue Reading
Reading Time: 4 minutes A language is a set of standards. One has to follow them in order to avail benefits from the language. In order to maintain these standards, code in Scala has to be written in order to minimize the errors whether they are related with the concepts like redundancy of operations, use of properties of language those not supported by ScalaStyle or ScapeGoat or other checkers.

Reading Time: 2 minutes We have a monthly iBAT (Inphina Beer and Technology Sessions). We look forward to this day and it was Scala day this time. I presented on Scala collections. Scala collection is elegant and concise. Scala Collections like java is object-oriented and we can work with generic types. It is optionally persistent i.e can be mutable and immutable. It provides higher order methods like foreach, map Continue Reading
