Review: „Scala Cookbook” By Alvin Alexander, O’Reilly Media

cover

Scala in examples

Scala Cookbook is very practical book. Author presents every small example as problem to solve and possible solutions with discussion. I learned syntax for some concepts (like pattern matching, auxiliary constructors, executing external commands, lazy collections) I’ve seen in other programming languages. The book helped me better understand how implicits work.

Moreover, there are available bonus chapters providing recipes about XML, XPath, testing, debugging and Play framework.

Scala Cookbook is comprehensive book. It provides practical solution for typical developer’s problem and I recommend this book everybody interested in Scala.
