Is Scala a More Efficient Programming Language?

Is Scala a More Efficient Programming Language?

Recently I've heard more mention of Scala in programming realms that it could become a better standard for programming languages.  It seems they are gaining popularity. According to their website, Twitter, LinkedIn and Intel are using Scala with their systems. It's goal is to create a more efficient programming language. Comparison to other programming languages "Scala is statically typed, while both Groovy and Clojure are dynamically typed. This makes the type system more complex and difficult to understand but allows almost all type errors to be caught at compile-time and can result in significantly faster execution. "  via Wikipedia History The programming language name is a blend of the words "scalable" and "language". Martin Odersky began developing Scala in 2001.  The first version of Scala was introduced to the public in 2004. The second version released in 2006. The current version is 2.11.8. Watch Marconi Lanna's 2015 review of Scala Click here to visit the Scala website and learn more.

AR - augmented reality - a live direct or indirect view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented (or supplemented) by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data (read more at Wikipedia). AI - artificial intelligence - the intelligence exhibited by machines or software and how they are capable of thought and behaviors. (read more at Wikipedia). VR - virtual reality - a computer technology that replicates an environment, real or imagined, and simulates a user's physical presence and environment in a way that allows the user to interact with it.

Tips for Timing Your Social Media Shares

Tips for Timing Your Social Media Shares

Fulton J. Sheen said, “Patience is power. Patience is not an absence of action; rather it is "timing" it waits on the right time to act....” Practice patience and timing within your social media strategy and scheduling. The heart-warming video or gorgeous graphic that was just delivered may need to wait a few minutes or hours before sending it out to your followers. When is the best time to reach the maximum target group? Are they awake? Will they likely have their device in-hand? Where will they most likely be? Will the majority want to hear my message? The right message to share at the right time with the right audience. Line up those factors to consider when you will post your content.
