Overview

Programming in Scala is the definitive book on Scala, the new language for the Java Platform that blends object-oriented and functional programming concepts into a unique and powerful tool for developers.

Coauthored by the designer of the Scala language, Martin Odersky, this authoritative book will teach you, one step at a time, the Scala language and the ideas behind it.

The book is carefully crafted to help you learn. The first few chapters will give you enough of the basics that you can already start using Scala for simple tasks. The entire book is organized so that each new concept builds on concepts that came before - a series of steps that promises to help you master the Scala language and the important ideas about programming that Scala embodies.

A comprehensive tutorial and reference for Scala, this book covers the entire language and important libraries.

    It goes on and on...

    I don't know who this book is for. A professional programmer will find its prosaic, glancing, style frustrating. A coding newbie will find its level daunting. We're used to programming language books that use the first, and maybe the second, chapter to demonstrate the novel features of the language, without explaining the details. The details are left for the subsequent chapters, where they are comprehensively covered. "Programming in Scala" never seems to shift gears from that "first chapter" mindset. It is almost as if it is a collection of overly wordy Dr. Dobbs articles on different aspects of the language. Somewhere around page 220 I gave up and moved on to Pollak's "Beginning Scala" and then, probably the most satisfying, Subramaniam's "Programming Scala".
