  • SonarLint - Deliver Cleaner and Safer Code - Right in Your IDE of Choice!
  • OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • Scalatra

    Tiny Scala high-performance, async web framework, inspired by Sinatra

    Start collaborating on an open-source library: this point was a bit more complicated than I thought. Many libraries are either too big or have too many contributors already or are too advanced for a beginner or don’t have good-first-issues. I decided to settle down on Scalatra because I was already using it in my demo project.

  • scalatraseed

    Find a project/application to build with Scala: a web app that supports most technologies that are required these days for a fully-featured website. I called it scalatraseed since it uses the Scalatra web framework at its core.

  • SonarLint

    Deliver Cleaner and Safer Code - Right in Your IDE of Choice!. SonarLint is a free and open source IDE extension that identifies and catches bugs and vulnerabilities as you code, directly in the IDE. Install from your favorite IDE marketplace today.

  • Find/create Scala cheat sheet: here

  • Scalastyle

    scalastyle

    Find a code conventions document: the online Scala course that I’ve started uses Scalastyle for enforcing the style of the code. If it’s good enough for the Scala core team, it’s good enough for me.
