  • Create primary and auxiliary constructors
  • Call superclass constructors and methods
  • Understand and use parametric fields
  • Create factory methods in companion objects
  • Construct simple DSLs (Domain Specific Languages)
  • Understand top and bottom types and how Scala uses them
  • Write correct equals and hashCode methods
  • Use traits to mix behavior into classes
  • Know the different styles of packages and visibility modifiers
  • Be able to import anything from anywhere
  • Write pre-conditions and post-conditions
  • Test your code with unit testing
