Learn Scala for Java Developers

Sample Chapters

By Toby Weston

Scala is a concise, statically typed scripting language that runs on the Java Virtual Machine. It is both a functional programming language and object-oriented language but its emphasis on functional programming sets it apart from Java.

Learn Scala for Java Developers is for Java developers looking to transition to programming Scala. The book will help you translate the Java you already know into Scala and kick-start your productivity.

What's Inside:

  • Tour Scala and learn the basic syntax, constructs and how to use the REPL
  • Translate Java syntax that you already know into Scala
  • Learn what Scala offers over and above Java, functional programming concepts and idioms
  • Tips and advice useful when transitioning existing Java projects to Scala
