Step into the role of a software engineer at TechPower, a consulting company that’s building an independent music-sharing platform where new artists can upload their music to gain exposure. For this project, TechPower has chosen Scala—a language that combines object-oriented programming and functional programming—in hopes of being able to engage engineers with different backgrounds. You’ll set up your environment to prepare for running a project in Scala and implement your design with Scala classes and traits. You’ll apply functional programming concepts as you add features and functionality that will help musical artists showcase their talents. To ensure the platform is robust, reliable, and ready for showtime, you’ll design, create, and implement tests that cover all reasonable scenarios. By the end of this series, you’ll have the skills and knowledge to design, build, and test a Scala system using Scala tools, including Simple Build Tool (SBT), IntelliJ IDEA, and specs2.
The project is a great introduction to many important techniques, going from designing a UML diagram to implementation and testing.
You’re a software engineer at TechPower, a consulting company that wants to expand its reach in the tech market by incorporating more programming languages and technologies. This will help it create products while hiring from a more diverse pool of engineers. For TechPower’s latest project, your task is to design an independent music-sharing platform where new artists can upload their music, putting it in front of new eyes (and ears!) for free. Using Simple Build Tool (SBT) and IntelliJ IDEA, you’ll set up your environment to prepare for running a project in Scala, a language that combines object-oriented programming and the functional paradigm. Keeping in mind the platform's users and the kinds of content it will host, you’ll define the main entities and dependencies as part of a Unified Modeling Language (UML) diagram. You’ll implement your design with Scala classes and traits, preparing the utility for function additions later on.
TechPower wants to grow in the tech market and enhance its presence by adding new technologies to its toolbox. Scala is a good option as it combines functional and object-oriented programming paradigms. As a software engineer, your task is to add features and functionality to the consulting company’s current project: a music-sharing platform where artists can share their music with the world. Using Scala, Simple Build Tool (SBT), and IntelliJ IDEA, you’ll design and implement functions for previously defined entities, then improve them by refactoring. When you’re done, you’ll know how to apply functional programming concepts to designing and implementing system functionality in a Scala project.
It’s almost showtime! TechPower, a consulting company, has a partially implemented music-sharing platform, created in Scala, that leverages the language’s combination of object-oriented programming and the functional paradigm. As a software engineer at TechPower, your task is to ensure the prototype’s codebase hits a high note before going live. With the help of the Scala ecosystem libraries, you’ll design and create test specifications and samples, keeping in mind functionality, possible outcomes, and data values. You’ll implement your tests using SimpleBuild Tool (SBT) or IntelliJ IDEA, debug them, check corner cases, and verify that you’ve covered all reasonable scenarios. When you’re done, TechPower’s music-sharing platform will be robust, reliable, and ready for the spotlight!
This learning and the step-by-step execution model was new and awesome.
This liveProject is for beginner-level developers who know the basics of at least one language and are interested in learning Scala as well as the functional approach to system design. To begin these liveProjects you’ll need to be familiar with the following:TOOLS
In this liveProject series, you’ll learn to design, build, and test a system using Scala tools that combine OOP and the functional paradigm.
