What is Scala?
Scala is the functional and object-oriented programming language that makes Lightbend Reactive and helps developers write code that’s more concise than other options, so apps are less costly to maintain and easier to evolve.
Scala is a program language created specifically with the goal of being a better language, improving those aspects of Java which were considered as restrictive, overly tedious, or frustrating for the developer. It introduces code distinctions and paradigm shifts which bring a much cleaner and well-organized language that is ultimately easier to use and increases productivity.
