Why Scala

Scala is a functional and also object oriented programming language

In Scala everything is an object.

Scala programs run on JVM and Scala helps us to ease our job. For example, we have a list of collections and if we want to process those, then in Java, we have to write a lot of code to do this. But using Scala this can be done with few lines. But this got resolved in Java 8 using Lambda expressions.

Scala is used widely in the Big data

Scala’s trait is similar like an interface in Java. But Trait contains abstract and normal methods. Java borrowed this feature from Scala and the Java 8 interface contains default methods
