Summary

Scala in Action is a comprehensive tutorial that introduces Scala through clear explanations and numerous hands-on examples. Because Scala is a rich and deep language, it can be daunting to absorb all the new concepts at once. This book takes a "how-to" approach, explaining language concepts as you explore familiar programming challenges that you face in your day-to-day work.

About the Technology

Scala runs on the JVM and combines object-orientation with functional programming. It's designed to produce succinct, type-safe code, which is crucial for enterprise applications. Scala implements Actor-based concurrency through the amazing Akka framework, so you can avoid Java's messy threading while interacting seamlessly with Java.
