Comments on: Devoxx 2008: Does the java language have a future? Friends of Oracle and Java Sat, 01 Aug 2015 11:10:05 +0000 hourly 1 By: Joni Freeman Fri, 12 Dec 2008 08:40:22 +0000 Hi,

Scala is not “a dynamic” language like Ruby or Python. It is statically typed but the compiler has a type inference mechanism. That’s why you do not see type annotations all over the source files.
