The Java 8 vs Scala Debate
I’ve heard the Java 8 vs Scala debate in many quarters over the last time period. Its a curious discussion, like so many technology camp discussions. There’s the classic view of feature comparison, coupled with the enterprise language views of the world, and we might as well throw in the long standing imperative to functional switch club. Scala uptake in the last 1-2 years has increase from where I sit in the financial world. I don’t see Java 8 slowing this uptake, but it will aid the Joe Average Java developer in moving towards a functional programming road.
