A map is a collection of key/value pairs. Any value can be retrieved based on its key. This video covers the creation of maps in addition to the logic required to traverse a map.
- [Lecturer] In Scala, the Map collection type…allows us to store key-value pairs.…Using this concept of storing key-value pairs…allows us to retrieve any value based on its key.…In your Exercise Files folder, under Chapter 03, 03_06,…you'll find a file called mapExamples.sc.…This is a worksheet that I created…that has an example of a Map.…So on line two I declared a variable called groceries…and it's equal to a Map, notice the capital M…and then in parentheses it has a list of key-value pairs.…
So this is a grocery list that has four items,…milk, bread, juice and eggs.…All right, let's take a look at what we can do with Maps.…If we want to we can add additional items to our Map,…so we can type groceries, we can say that's equal to…groceries plus, and we have to give it a key-value pair.…Now, because I have one, two, three, four,…the next logical key would be five,…but it doesn't have to be sequential,…I could've put in a key-value of six…and this value is going to be hashbrowns.…
Looks like we have some breakfast items…
Join Peggy Fisher as she helps get you started with Scala, so you can leverage the unique capabilities it offers. First, learn the basics of type inference, variables, loops, functions, and operators. Then, find out how to read files using a console, perform pattern matching, handle exceptions, and more. Finally, learn how to use classes, fields, methods, and objects.
