Scala for the Impatient
One thing that I do not have is patience. More so when picking up a new programming language.
Downloaded the free PDF from Typesafe’s site, enjoying it. Such books are quite rare in the market, not just limited to Scala IMO. Any programming book with exercises after every chapter wins my vote. Too bad its a little half baked in terms of content, but the print and final edition looks more promising, I’ve already pre-ordered it from Amazon. I’ve started to play with the exercises and have hosted the solutions on my github, just to keep me motivated to go through every nook and cranny of the book.
BTW I’ve always wondered why scala-lang.org looks like a corporate-y site from early 2000s. Maybe its a Europe thing.
