Creating Native iOS and Android Apps in Scala without tears

Session Recording

About this Session

A lot of the software products today consist of components that need to run on mobile devices. Although there are many frameworks allowing for the development of applications for Android and IOS, most of them use technologies that are far away from Scala. This talk is about a group of die - hard Scala enthusiasts who were determined to bring their favourite language from the server room to the mobile phones of people. The talk will introduce Scar - a framework that utilises scalajs and React Native to allow developers to write native mobile apps in Scala.

Required Knowledge

  • experience in Scala
  • understanding of mobile app developement concepts
  • familiarity with React Native is beneficial
