Why learn Scala? You don’t need to be a data scientist or distributed computing expert to appreciate this object-oriented functional programming language. This practical book provides a comprehensive yet approachable introduction to the language, complete with syntax diagrams, examples, and exercises. You’ll start with Scala's core types and syntax before diving into higher-order functions and immutable data structures. Author Jason Swartz demonstrates why Scala’s concise and expressive syntax make it an ideal language for Ruby or Python developers who want to improve their craft, while its type safety and performance ensures that it’s stable and fast enough for any application. Learn about the core data types, literals, values, and variables Discover how to think and write in expressions, the foundation for Scala's syntax Write higher-order functions that accept or return other functions Become familiar with immutable data structures and easily transform them with type-safe and declarative operations Create custom infix operators to simplify existing operations or even to start your own domain-specific language Build classes that compose one or more traits for full reusability, or create new functionality by mixing them in at instantiation

Learn how to be more productive with Scala, a new multi-paradigm language for the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) that integrates features of both object-oriented and functional programming. With this book, you'll discover why Scala is ideal for highly scalable, component-based applications that support concurrency and distribution. Programming Scala clearly explains the advantages of Scala as a JVM language. You'll learn how to leverage the wealth of Java class libraries to meet the practical needs of enterprise and Internet projects more easily. Packed with code examples, this book provides useful information on Scala's command-line tools, third-party tools, libraries, and available language-aware plugins for editors and IDEs. Learn how Scala's succinct and flexible code helps you program faster Discover the notable improvements Scala offers over Java's object model Get a concise overview of functional programming, and learn how Scala's support for it offers a better approach to concurrency Know how to use mixin composition with traits, pattern matching, concurrency with Actors, and other essential features Take advantage of Scala's built-in support for XML Learn how to develop domain-specific languages Understand the basics for designing test-driven Scala applications

This is the eBook of the printed book and may not include any media, website access codes, or print supplements that may come packaged with the bound book. Interest in the Scala programming language continues to grow for many reasons. Scala embraces the functional programming style without abandoning the object-oriented paradigm, and it allows you to write programs more concisely than in Java. Because Scala runs on the JVM, it can access any Java library and is interoperable with familiar Java frameworks. Scala also makes it easier to leverage the full power of concurrency. Written for experienced Java, C++, or C# programmers who are new to Scala or functional programming, Scala for the Impatient, Second Edition, introduces the key Scala concepts and techniques you need in order to be productive quickly. It is the perfect introduction to the language, particularly for impatient readers who want to learn the fundamentals of Scala so they can start coding quickly. It doesn’t attempt to exhaustively list all the features of the language or make you suffer through long and contrived examples. Instead, carefully crafted examples and hands-on activities guide you through well-defined stages of competency, from basic to expert. This revised edition has been thoroughly updated for Scala 2.12 and reflects current Scala usage. It includes added coverage of recent Scala features, including string interpolation, dynamic invocation, implicit classes, and futures. Scala is a big language, but you can use it effectively without knowing all of its details intimately. This title provides precisely the information that you need to get started in compact, easy-to-understand chunks. Get started quickly with Scala’s interpreter, syntax, tools, and unique idioms Master core language features: functions, arrays, maps, tuples, packages, imports, exception handling, and more Become familiar with object-oriented programming in Scala: classes, inheritance, and traits Use Scala for real-world programming tasks: working with files, regular expressions, and XML Work with higher-order functions and the powerful Scala collections library Leverage Scala’s powerful pattern matching and case classes Create concurrent programs with Scala futures Implement domain-specific languages Understand the Scala type system Apply advanced “power tools,” such as annotations, implicits, and type classes

With its flexibility for programming both small and large projects, Scala is an ideal language for teaching beginning programming. Yet there are no textbooks on Scala currently available for the CS1/CS2 levels. Introduction to the Art of Programming Using Scala presents many concepts from CS1 and CS2 using a modern, JVM-based language that works well for both programming in the small and programming in the large. The book progresses from true programming in the small to more significant projects later, leveraging the full benefits of object orientation. It first focuses on fundamental problem solving and programming in the small using the REPL and scripting environments. It covers basic logic and problem decomposition and explains how to use GUIs and graphics in programs. The text then illustrates the benefits of object-oriented design and presents a large collection of basic data structures showing different implementations of key ADTs along with more atypical data structures. It also introduces multithreading and networking to provide further motivating examples. By using Scala as the language for both CS1 and CS2 topics, this textbook gives students an easy entry into programming small projects as well as a firm foundation for taking on larger-scale projects. Many student and instructor resources are available at www.programmingusingscala.net
