More Resources for Scala Programmers October 28, 2009

There are a number of excellent resources for those that want to program in Scala – or learn to.

O’Reilly Media recently came out with a book Programming Scala by Wampler and Payne. The real interesting thing is that Programming Scala is also available for reading free online – and it is also available as an ebook.

There is a nice set of slides to introduce you to Scala. There are two quotes in the slides that I just love:

If I were to pick a language to use today other than Java, it would be Scala.
– James Gosling

I can honestly say that if someone had shown me the Programming in Scala book … back in 2003, I’d probably have never created Groovy.
– James Strachan
