About this blog

Scala and Java programming topics. But let’s face it, Scala is much cooler, so mainly that.

Luigi P refers to my screen name Luigi Plinge at StackOverflow and, originally, JavaRanch (is that still a thing?). JavaRanch tried to enforce a real names policy and wouldn’t let me use Dash Riprock, so I “stuck it to the man” and came up with a portmanteau of the Nintendo character Luigi and Walter Plinge, a pseudonym used in theatre by actors who don’t want to use their real name.

Well so much for anonymity. My real name is Rhys, and I live not far from London in the UK. I’m a science graduate and former fintech consultant for a large firm, working in the City and around the world. You can contact me via the comments below, or via email: rjones.careers@gmail.com.

  1. Hi Luigi, my name is Deden Bangkit, I’m from Indonesia. I’am the one who asked a scala question on stackoverflow. I don’t know who you are but I just want to say thank you, with every new lesson or term explained by other brilliant people on stackoverflow, you gave some meaningful example. You genuinely showed concern and interest in solving solution. You will continue to be my favorite teacher until I come across more to add to your ranks.


    Thank you,
