About Lab Challenges

Lab challenges are hands-on labs with the gloves off. You jump into an auto-provisioned cloud environment and are given a goal to accomplish. No instructions, no hints. To pass, you'll have a limited time to demonstrate your problem-solving skills and get the checks that inspect the state of your lab environment.

Challenge Description

In this lab challenge, you will need to prove your knowledge of the Scala programming language by leveraging the advanced entities that Scala offers such as higher-order functions, for-expressions, and pattern matching.

The challenge objectives represent a few of the advanced skills that software engineers who focus on functional programming should have. You'll be given a desired end state and be required to reach it using your knowledge of Scala. This lab challenge simulates building a solution in a real-world scenario. As with any real-world scenario, this lab will not guide you through the steps needed to complete it.

Before attempting the challenge, we strongly recommend completing the following Scala labs:

What will be assessed

  • Your ability to use advanced Scala components
  • Particular aspects to the parts related to the functional programming

Intended audience

  • Software engineers, especially those focused on functional programming
  • Data engineers, mainly focused on handling large datasets


  • Good knowledge of Scala
