Scala 2 for Beginners
The popular Scala course that taught 35000+ engineers, still available for Scala 2.
The course that started Rock the JVM is still live.
Scala is one of the most powerful programming languages invented by humankind. This course taught 35000+ engineers, now working at the biggest companies in the world.
Although we have a completely revamped course specifically for Scala 3, This course will still be alive on Rock the JVM for as long as people continue to use the old Scala 2. It's only fair - this course started Rock the JVM as a project.
This course is 100% compatible with the latest fully supported Scala 2 version (currently 2.13), and contains all the features of the Scala 3 version of the course:
- Timeless Scala skills, on any version
- Object Orientation
- Functional Programming
- Pattern Matching
and gives you the same perks:
- Full code I write on camera (2000+ LOC)
- Exclusive access our private Slack group
- Takeaway slides
- All updates free
- Never expires

I'm a software engineer and the founder of Rock the JVM. I started the Rock the JVM project out of love for Scala and the technologies it powers - they are all amazing tools and I want to share as much of my experience with them as I can.
As of June 2021, I've taught Java, Scala and related tech (e.g. Akka, Cats, Spark) to 41000+ students at various levels and I've held live trainings for some of the best companies in the industry, including Adobe and Apple. I've also taught university students who now work at Google and Facebook (among others), I've held Hour of Code for 7-year-olds and I've taught more than 20000 kids to code.
I have a Master's Degree in Computer Science and I wrote my Bachelor and Master theses on Quantum Computation. Before starting to learn programming, I won medals at international Physics competitions.
