Lambda The Extreme: Test-Driving a Functional Language

Functional languages like Scala can reduce the complexity of writing high-concurrency, high-throughput systems, but growing software with TDD in Scala presents challenges unfamiliar to those of us who spend most of our time in the JavaScript, Java, and .NET worlds.

In this session at Agile2014, Tim Myer explained how to avoid the pitfalls of testing a functional language and offered some new techniques that you can apply to development in other languages, even if you have never written software using Scala before.
