IT recruiting firms are finding that one of the biggest programming languages of 2016 will be Scala. There are a few reasons why having this language on your resume will make you more attractive to IT recruiters and hiring managers.
1. Scala is used by some important companies. LinkedIn, Twitter, Novell, and Sony are just some of the big name companies that are having their technical recruiters reach out to IT professionals with Scala. Even if you aren’t looking for IT jobs at these companies, their influence will likely trickle down. Scala will probably become important to IT recruiting companies working for other employers, as well.
2. Scala is a great language for startups. As a language that is elegant and concise, it allows solid programming that can be done quickly. Since many startups often need quick releases of new products, IT staffing firms will likely see Scala become a more common requirement for them.
3. Scala has a strong community. Since people are what drive a programming language’s popularity, this is a big factor in how popular a language will be. With such a strong community for Scala, IT recruiting agencies will likely see it become more and more valuable to employers.
