Subject [UPDATE] Beginning Scala (now available in draft form from APress Alpha)
Date Wed, 28 Jan 2009 16:57:19 GMT
Folks... more information on *Beginning Scala*, the Scala book I'm working
on. It's available for pre-order from APress's web site. Additionally, draft
PDFs are available via APress's
Alpha<http://www.apress.com/book/view/1430219890>program.

For those who are wondering about the Table of Contents, here it is:

   1. About Scala and how to install it
   2. Scala syntax, scripts and the command line
   3. Collections and the joys of immutability
   4. Fun with Functions and never having to close that JDBC connection
   5. Pattern matching and getting rid of unwanted visitor patterns
   6. Actors and concurrency
   7. Traits and Types, gnarly stuff for architects
   8. Parsers because BNF is not just for academics anymore
   9. Scaling your team and your systems

I look forward to your feedback on the book!
 Additionally, the published version will be available on Safari, Books24x7,
SpringerLink, Amazon.com eBooks, Amazon Kindle, Google Books (at least in
appearance), and much more, as well as distributed in print worldwide.

Thanks,

David
