On October 28th I had the great fortune to be interviewed by Carl Franklin and Richard Campbell, hosts of .NET Rocks! We had a great conversation about what it’s like for a long time .NET developer to make the move to developing applications using Scala/Akka/Spray on the Java Virtual Machine. The episode aired as #1061 on November 13th, 2014. Richard and Carl are very gracious hosts and getting to spend an hour behind the curtain was a real treat!
In the spirit of creating a more complete picture than we were able to cover in the conversation on the show, I’ve collected a series of posts talking about what it was like to make the switch and how working with Scala, Akka, and Spray compares with working in C#.
As new posts are published, I’ll add them to the list here:
- Into the Wilderness
- Getting Set Up
- Meeting Scala
- Object-Oriented Scala
- Functional Scala
- Building on Scala with Akka Actors (Coming Soon)
