Scala is a concise, high-level, general-purpose programming language that combines object-oriented and functional programming. The name Scala is a portmanteau of scalable and language, and some Scala proponents call it “the better Java” because it was designed to address criticisms of Java. Scala has been praised for making it easy to write code using immutable data, which in turn helps developers write highly concurrent, low-latency applications with fewer bugs at high levels of complexity. Scala courses are often combined with functional programming courses since support for functional programming is the core advantage of Scala.

Scala is not a beginner programming language; however, there are a number of bootcamps and courses available for people with programming experience but no prior Scala experience. These courses may be advantageous to people who want to develop software at companies that use Scala, which include Netflix, Airbnb, Apple, Twitter, LinkedIn, Sony, and many more. The median salary for software developers in the United States is $105,000, and the top earners in the field—many of whom work at these top software firms—earn upwards of $160,000. The software development sector of the job market is projected to grow by 21 percent between 2018 and 2028, which is faster than the average across all occupations.
