About the Book
Scala is a powerful JVM language that blends the functional and OO programming models. You'll have no trouble getting introductions to Scala in books or online, but it's hard to find great examples and insights from experienced practitioners. You'll find them in Scala in Depth.
There's little heavy-handed theory here—just dozens of crisp, practical techniques for coding in Scala. Written for readers who know Java, Scala, or another OO language.
Concise, expressive, and readable code style
Integrate Scala into your existing Java projects
Scala's 2.8.0 collections API
How to use actors for concurrent programming
Mastering the Scala type system
Scala's OO features—type member inheritance, multiple inheritance, and composition
Functional concepts and patterns—immutability, applicative functors, and monads
