For bonus points

Did you get the tests passing and the code clean? If you want to, these are some additional things you could try:

  • Remove as much duplication as you possibly can.
  • Optimize for readability, even if it means introducing duplication.
  • If you've removed all the duplication, do you have a lot of conditionals? Try replacing the conditionals with polymorphism, if it applies in this language. How readable is it?

Then please share your thoughts in a comment on the submission. Did this experiment make the code better? Worse? Did you learn anything from it?

The Scala exercises assume an SBT project scheme. The exercise solution source should be placed within the exercise directory/src/main/scala. The exercise unit tests can be found within the exercise directory/src/test/scala.

To run the tests simply run the command sbt test in the exercise directory.

For more detailed info about the Scala track see the help page.
