What is ScalaBridge London?
ScalaBridge London's mission is to improve diversity within the Scala community and within the wider programming community. Delivering our mission builds on four pillars:
- Programming: learning programming is the main way we spend our time. We have a curriculum aimed at those with no or little programming experience, but can also help more experienced developers.
- Diversity: our efforts are focused on those currently underrepresented within the technology industry. We run in-person sessions in London and online sessions that are open to anyone around the world.
- Community: we are a welcoming and supportive community of practice bringing together students and experienced industry developers. Furthermore, ScalaBridge London is a community-run organization. This means our members volunteer to run it, and it's completely free to attend.
- Scala: Scala is the programming language we use. This is partly because the ScalaBridge London founders have a background in Scala, partly because there is a strong Scala community in London with a large number of employers, and partly because Scala lets us tackle a wide variety of different problems without having to learn different languages.
