This week in #Scala (26/10/2012)

Welcome to this week in Scala!

If you're not already convinced Scala is here to stay, or you need some help convincing your colleagues/boss that they should be adopting this elegant OO-FP hybrid, allow me to help. Respected consultancy ThoughtWorks have published their latest Technology Radar report, in which Scala has been promoted to "Adopt" status. Which, in other words, is to say "excuse me, you're not using this yet"? If that's not enough, there's always these neat slides I discovered by David Copeland; "Convince your Boss To let you use Scala"
