And the Oscar for best deb scalero goes to…

Before going on, we would like to thank you all that participated in this challenge. It’s totally inspiring see how people from many different places around the world share the same motivation, spending time on resolving a small challenge.

It was complicated to choose a winner (you did it really great). Discarding solutions that were based somehow on the distance between rovers (we modified the value of the constant DistanceBetweenRovers to check if rovers still find each other), and some others, we named finalists (by solution arrival order) the following people:

Pablo Francisco Pérez
Daniela Sfregola
Samuel Dehouck

Sebastián Ortega
Florian Mériaux

the very first 3 provided very nice solutions but finally we decided that the winner is …


Daniela Sfregola with a 50 tick/7 lines solution.


Congratulations! Yours is the Scalera t-shirt and our acknowledgement.
Thanks again to the participants. We will shortly be back with new challenges 😉

Y el Óscar al mejor scalero revelación es para…

Antes de nada, quisiéramos daros las gracias a todos los que habéis participado. Es totalmente inspirador ver como personas de distintas partes del planeta que comparten una misma inquietud, invierten su tiempo en resolver un pequeño pasatiempo.

Fue complicado elegir un ganador (nos lo habéis puesto difícil). Descartando las soluciones que tenían en cuenta de algún modo la distancia entre ambos rovers (modificamos el valor de esta constante para comprobar que sin tenerlo en cuenta los rovers se encontraban), y algunas un tanto más obtusas, nombramos finalistas (por orden de envío de soluciones) a:

Pablo Francisco Pérez
Daniela Sfregola
Samuel Dehouck

Sebastián Ortega
Florian Mériaux

de los cuales, los 3 primeros nos parecieron muy buenas soluciones. Pero finalmente hemos decidido que el ganador es …


Daniela Sfregola con una solución en 50 ticks/7 líneas.


Enhorabuena, tuya es la camiseta de Scalera y nuestro reconocimiento.
Gracias de nuevo a los participantes. Dentro de poco volveremos con más retos 😉

…and happy new year!

Before getting affectionate, we wanted to share with you some figures about current year.


Since March 2015 we have:

…published almost 40 posts (76 including translations).
…had +5400 visits, which…
+2500 are different visitors.
…with 187 visits per day at the most visited post.
+140 tweets.
+100 followers on Twitter.

And all thank to you.

Besides, we got lucky and counted on Javier Fuentes collaboration, as you can see at his awesome post about Shapeless (we still owe him some beers). And for next month, we have nearly arranged some other post with another Scala crack.

What’s next?

Now we re going to take a little but well-deserved christmas break.
We promise to be back next year with fully charged batteries and new ideas.


Merry Christmas!

…y próspero año nuevo!

Antes de empezar a ponernos cariñosos, queríamos hablar de cifras de este año.


Desde marzo de 2015 hemos:

…publicado casi 40 posts (76 incluyendo traducciones).
…tenido +5400 visitas, de los cuales…
…son +2500 visitantes distintos.
…con 187 visitas al día en el post más visitado.
+140 tweets.
+100 seguidores en Twitter.

Y todo ello gracias a vosotros.

Además, hemos contado con la colaboración de Javier Fuentes para un excelente post sobre Shapeless (aún le debemos unas cervezas). Y para el mes que viene tenemos otro post pactado con otro crack de Scala.

¿Y ahora qué?

Ahora toca tomarnos un breve pero merecido descanso navideño.
Prometemos volver para año nuevo con las pilas cargadas y nuevas ideas.


Pasad unas felices fiestas

Scala granita

Today’s post has something different (not only the mini-post format). We’ve been thinking, and talking about Scala unrelated stuff is sometimes nice as well.

Baby steps

We have to admit that this has been a good semester for Scalera. At the beginning we were only two monkeys writing about Scala and now…well, we’re actually the same monkeys, but it looks like people is getting used to read the blog, and that’s cool. Cool for Scala, and for all of us, the people that suffer enjoy the language features. If with that tiny action, we’ve made that someone else comes aboard to this crazy world, we’re fully satisfied. 🙂

On the other hand, we also have to admit that we never thought about the tough it can be writing a post per week (translations included), and that’s why we’ve decided to take a break next month, with the intentions of coming back in september, fully fresh and recovered.


About Scalera’s TODO list after summer

At first, we want to be a pain in the neck at Codemotion (like last year with Scala@RealLife), but there are remaining votations in the communities for choosing best speech proposals ^^


Besides that, we consider that a blog cannot be followed without being able to prove it with a geek t-shirt or a coffee cup…we’ll think a little bit about how to mend that 🙂

And like the old cassettes yelled: “And much more stuff!”

If you have any comment/sugestion/idea for improving the blog, feel free to leave a comment on this post 😉


See you in september.
Happy summer.
Press like and ‘suscrb plz’.

Tower of Babel

We’re really proud to announce that, from now, we’re becoming a little bit more polyglots 😀

We’ve been having a look at all published posts so far and, after a hard restoring process, he have remastered them full HD with a spoonful of english (our thanks to @mmartinbarr 😀 ). What we have in mind is going on publishing in both languages, our mother language Castilian and Shakespeare’s language, offering all of our extensive knowledge about Scala.



Thanks everybody!
