Packed with examples and exercises, Get Programming with Scala is perfect starting point for developers with some OO knowledge who want to learn this multi-style programming language for the JVM, and pick up a few FP skills along the way. Master Scala, and you'll be well-equipped to match your programming approach to the type of problem you're dealing with.

Get Programming with Scala teaches you the core skills you'll need to code with Scala. You'll start by reviewing OOP concepts in the Scala language. Then, you'll gradually open up the world of functional programming. You'll explore functions and types and learn how to combine them to create powerful, flexible abstractions. Scala can be daunting at first, especially if you’re seeing FP ideas for the first time. Fortunately, with the examples and exercises in this book, you’ll get over the initial learning hump quickly and start doing interesting projects before you know it!
