Scala is a language that join both worlds “Functional Programming” and “Object Oriented”.
We talked a little bit about “Functional Programming” in the previous SKBs and today we are going to introduce the basics for “Object Oriented” : the classes and more specifically how to create an instance of a class.
We will be diving a bit more into the theory after the exercise.
class is a collection of functions that can be reused. This collection is created with parameters and that will make the

In a lot of programming books, you will see a
