Until now, most discussions of Scala have been too abstract, academic, and complex for working programmers. Now, Scala for the Impatientconcisely shows developers what Scala can do and how to do it. Using Scala, you can write, read, debug, and test programs more easily, as well as leverage the full power of parallelism and concurrency. Moreover, since Scala runs on the JVM, it can access any Java library and integrate with any Java program. So for Java and other object programmers, Scala represents the best of both worlds. In this book, Cay S. Horstmann does for Scala what he did for Java in his global best-seller Core Java™: He offers a rapid, code-based introduction that's completely practical. Horstmann introduces each Scala concept and technique in "blog-sized" chunks you can quickly master and apply. Hands-on activities guide you through well-defined stages of competency, from basic to expert. Coverage includes Getting started quickly with Scala's interpreter, syntax, tools, and unique idioms Mastering core language features: functions, arrays, maps, tuples, classes, objects, packages, imports, inheritance, files, regular expressions, and more Empowering and extending classes with traits and services Implementing new operators for Domain-Specific Languages and other purposes Working with higher-order functions, collections, and advanced types Leveraging Scala's powerful pattern matching and case classes Creating Scala annotations and interoperating with Java annotations Reading, analyzing, creating, and writing XML Applying advanced "power tools": Actors, Implicits, and Delimited Continuations Scala is rapidly reaching a tipping point that will reshape the experience of programming. This book will help current object programmers build on their existing skills, allowing them to immediately construct useful applications as they gradually master breakthrough functional programming techniques.
