I presented a talk at the 2nd meeting of the new ScalaSyd Meetup last night. I talked through the "Top 10 Reasons Java Programs Envy Scala" in an attempt to give Java developers a taste of some little things that could make them much more productive if they switch to Scala.
If you'd like to watch the Prezi, or listen to the talk (or both!), here are the links:
Presentation: Top 10 Reasons Java Programs Envy Scala (Graham Lea)
Audio Simulcast: Top 10 Reasons Java Programs Envy Scala (Graham Lea)
At the end of the talk, I mention that people who are tempted to learn Scala might want to look at my blog post, Graham's guide to learning Scala.
If you'd like to have a look at the code examples used in the talk you can view them on or clone them from GitHub.
