BUDAPEST, HUNGARY, December 27, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ — ProScala Foundation starts fundraising for its podcasting endeavor: ProScala Podcasts. ProScala Podcasts (https://proscala.com/podcasts) received good reviews in its community (see their LinkedIn group: https://www.linkedin.com/groups/8951149/ – join only after listening to the podcast!) and just finished Season 1 of their show, now aiming to boost traction for the existing content and the knowledge spreading effort built around it (see https://proscala.com for their whitepaper).
Fundraising aims to help keep the concept on track while Season 2 is in preparation.
The knowledge spreading effort focuses on solutions that are better aligned with today’s IT industry challenges, mainly highlighting the Functional paradigm and all the ways it can help to ignite fruitful discussions about agile effective programming.
The focus is Scala programming and giving a helping hand for Java developers to make a career shift toward that language as it is familiar means of programming for newcomers to the Functional paradigm, based on the JVM, being an OOP-Functional hybrid, having some Java-ish coding constructs while still utilizing the best of the Functional paradigm, aiming to be close to pure Functional without sacrificing usability and the chance of easy onboarding of people coming from the Imperative world.
Podcast host Csaba Kincses has a self-taught background having gained Scala experience prior to Java being a part-time Scala developer from 2009, switching to a tech career in 2017. Discovering the hurdles which are against letting some advanced technologies widespread, the author aimed to develop a concept that is more effective in provoking discussions that can advance community goals as cited below from Episode One of the show:
“The show is focused on three audience segments, newbies, seniors, and business, this may need further explanation. As for aspects of programming, the focus is scalability and agility and the tool is Scala programming, therefore besides juniors, I refer to curious Java or other programmers willing to learn more as newbies and mostly Scala seniors as seniors. Business meant to be the people who are in the position of choosing Scala for example as an implementation technology or do a hiring or strategic decision to go in that way.
I’d like to bring these three groups in one community to open up a wide discussion between them.”
The author believes that the way the concept is built up (see whitepaper: https://proscala.com) will let many have the positive experience of dealing with software craftsmanship at its finest, having the chance to take part in valuable discussions about industry insights while later on having the opportunity to get their hands dirty with code utilizing their newly acquired knowledge.
