Even within a single application, programming problems often lend themselves to a particular style of programming - functional, imperative, dynamic - but most languages require you to choose a single approach before you start. Scala is a statically typed, JVM-compatible programming language that blends the object oriented and functional programming models, giving one the flexibility to use the right approach for each specific case.
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 while exploring familiar programming challenges that programmers face in their day-to-day work.
