About Escalate Software

Escalate Principal Dick Wall has a deep and extensive knowledge of the Scala language and a strong track record of training and mentoring in Scala and other technologies. With well over a decade of real-world Scala experience, the information is comprehensive, relevant and grounded in real projects and experience.

Dick is founder of the Bay Area Scala Enthusiasts (BASE)—a monthly developer-centric Scala group in Silicon Valley. Dick is also the first recipient of the Phil Bagwell Memorial Scala Community Award. He is a committer on several Scala open source projects and creator of SubCut - a dependency injection solution for Scala, and a regular contributor to many open source projects including Ensime and Scala debugger.

While working with Typesafe (now Lightbend), Dick rebooted the Scala Community Contributions process and ran the revamped SIP and SLIP committee for a year.

Dick also is a former Google developer advocate where he taught hundreds of developers, both internal and external to Google, topics like Android, Google App Engine, Google Collections Library (now Guava) and GWT. In addition, Dick is the creator and co-host of the Java Posse podcast and a member of the Scalawags podcast.
