Øyvind Raddum Berg is a developer at Penger.no, where he has had the opportunity to play and work with Scala for over two years. He has a love for starting new, amazing projects and discarding them two days later, something which has brought him to a lot of interesting platforms and languages.

Initial focus will be on motivation for the team and for myself. Then we have a look at how my team tested the waters first, and how that testing developed into a multiphased porting strategy:
By sharing some experience for each of these phases, I hope this talk can be useful for anyone considering doing the same.
