We have a Scala Room!

What follows is the stream-of-conciousness and research that lead up to our newest sample room!


Day 0

So for me 2017/18 is going to include adventures in polyglot.

This will include but will not be only restricted to Kotlin,Prolog, Erlang, Racket, Haskell, Closure, Scala

Day 1

Decide on tooling.

Learn to stop hating and love regexes

scala> sample
res69: String =
    "username": "username",
    "userId": "<userId>",
    "version": 1|2

scala> pattern
res70: scala.util.matching.Regex = (?s)(\w+),([^,]*),(.*)

scala> val pattern(target,id,payload) = sample
target: String = roomHello
id: String = <roomId>
payload: String =
    "username": "username",
    "userId": "<userId>",
    "version": 1|2


Day 2

Day 3

Day 4

Day 5

Day 6

ooh, its getting addictive to play with the bootstrap

Day 7

stay up until 3am refactoring code unrelated to this, but in Scala. So all the ensime skillz gained were useful, and got to use partial functions and currying. w00t!

Day 8

oops… fix repo name from sample-scala-room to sample-room-scala

Day 9
