Steps in Scala : An Introduction to Object-Functional Programming, Paperback / softback Book

Steps in Scala : An Introduction to Object-Functional Programming Paperback / softback


Scala is a highly expressive, concise and scalable language.

It is also the most prominent method of the new and exciting methodology known as object-functional programming.

In this book, the authors show how Scala grows to the needs of the programmer, whether professional or hobbyist.

They teach Scala with a step-by-step approach and explain how to exploit the full power of the industry-proven JVM technology.

Readers can then dive into specially chosen design challenges and implementation problems, inspired by the trials of real-world software engineering.

It also helps readers to embrace the power of static typing and automatic type inference.

In addition, the book shows how to use the dual-object and functional-oriented natures combined at Scala's core, and so write code that is less 'boilerplate', giving a genuine increase in productivity.
