Atomic Scala

Atomic Scala
Sample Chapter(s)

by Bruce Eckel and Dianne Marsh

This should be your first Scala book, not your last. We show you enough to become familiar and comfortable with the language – competent, but not expert. You’ll write useful Scala code, but you won’t necessarily be able to read all the Scala code you encounter.

When you’re done, you’ll be ready for more complex Scala books, several of which we recommend at the end of this one.

This is a book for a dedicated novice. "Novice" because you don’t need prior programming knowledge, but “dedicated” because we’re giving you just enough to figure it out on your own. We give you a foundation in programming and in Scala but we don’t overwhelm you with the full extent of the language.

Beginning programmers should think of it as a game: You can get through, but you’ll need to solve a few puzzles along the way. Experienced programmers can move rapidly through the book and find the place where they need to slow down and start paying attention.

The free sample PDF available here contains the first half of the book (198 pages). To purchase the full book, please go to www.AtomicScala.com.
