Good night

I was curious about Scala language, so I visited a site to know more about it.

But something curious is written in there:

"In April 2009 Twitter announced they had switched large portions of their backend from Ruby to Scala and intended to convert the rest. In addition Foursquare uses Scala and Lift."

I was wandering, which are software and hardware requirements to make Scala work correctly?

thank you

The Scala software distribution can be installed on any Unix-like or Windows system. It requires the Java runtime version 1.5 or later, which can be downloaded for instance from Sun Microsystems or IBM.
