Save time and trouble building object-oriented, functional, and concurrent applications with Scala. The latest edition of this comprehensive cookbook is packed with more than 250 ready-to-use recipes and 1,000 code examples to help you solve the most common problems when working with Scala 3 and its popular libraries.
Scala changes the way you think about programming–and that’s a good thing. Whether you’re working on web, big data, or distributed applications, this cookbook provides recipes based on real-world scenarios for both experienced Scala developers and programmers just learning to use this JVM language. Author Alvin Alexander includes practical solutions from his experience using Scala for component-based, highly scalable applications that support concurrency and distribution.
Recipes cover:

  • Strings, numbers, and control structures
  • Classes, methods, objects, traits, packaging, and imports
  • Functional programming techniques
  • Scala’s wealth of collections classes and methods
  • Building and publishing Scala applications with sbt
  • Actors and concurrency with Scala Future and Akka Typed
  • Popular libraries, including Spark, Scala.js, Play Framework, and GraalVM
  • Types, such as variance, givens, intersections, and unions
  • Best practices, including pattern matching, modules, and functional error handling
