9789351102632: Scala Cookbook

Save time and trouble when using Scala to build object-oriented, functional, and concurrent applications. With more than 250 ready-to-use recipes and 700 code examples, this comprehensive cookbook covers the most common problems you’ll encounter when using the Scala language, libraries, and tools. It’s ideal not only for experienced Scala developers, but also for programmers learning to use this JVM language.

Author Alvin Alexander (creator of DevDaily.com) provides solutions based on his experience using Scala for highly scalable, component-based applications that support concurrency and distribution. Packed with real-world scenarios, this book provides recipes for:

  • Strings, numeric types, and control structures
  • Classes, methods, objects, traits, and packaging
  • Functional programming in a variety of situations
  • Collections covering Scala's wealth of classes and methods
  • Concurrency, using the Akka Actors library
  • Using the Scala REPL and the Simple Build Tool (SBT)
  • Web services on both the client and server sides
  • Interacting with SQL and NoSQL databases
  • Best practices in Scala development

About the Author:

Alvin took the circuitous route to software development. He managed to get a degree in Aerospace Engineering from Texas A&M University, while all he was really trying to do was play baseball. Once he became a practicing engineer, he realized he liked software and programming more than engineering. So in approximate order he taught himself Fortran, C, Unix and network administration, sed, awk, Perl, Java, Python, Ruby, JRuby, Groovy, PHP, and Scala. During this process he started a software consulting firm, grew it to fifteen people, sold it, and moved to Alaska for a few years. After returning to the “Lower 48,” he self-published two books (“How I Sold My Business: A Personal Diary”, and “Zen and the Art of Consulting”). He also created devdaily.com, which receives millions of page views every year, and started a new software consulting business, Valley Programming.
