Riding the 2018.2 release wave that has recently hit our IDEs, we’re also updating our Educational Products so that your everyday learning and teaching is full of even more joy and the drive to spread knowledge.
Scala is now supported
We’re happy to welcome Scala as the next programming language supported by our Educational Products. Educators can now share their Scala knowledge in the form of coding tasks and custom verification tests, the same they do for Java, Kotlin, and Python.
Unfortunately, we don’t have any Scala courses yet. We need your help!
If you’re an educator, please take a look at the Quickstart Guide and try to create your own course. If you need our support or want to help create Scala learning materials, please let us know. If you’re a learner, do share your favorite Scala learning materials with us! Just leave a comment here or contact us on Twitter.
Project-based learning, first steps
Project-based learning is about making something real, driving results that help learners stay engaged and motivated. We believe it is of paramount importance especially in learning programming. In this release, we’ve implemented Framework Lessons which is is the first step towards making project-based learning a first-class approach supported by our Educational Products.
