Write modern, scalable, and reactive applications with the power of Scala
About This Book
Who This Book Is For
If you are a Java or JVM developer who wants to use Scala to build reactive functional applications for the JVM platform, then this book is for you. Prior knowledge of Java or functional programing would help. No Scala knowledge is required.
What You Will Learn
Scala is known for incorporating both object-oriented and functional programming into a concise and extremely powerful package. However, creating an app in Scala can get a little tricky because of the complexity the language has. This book will help you dive straight into app development by creating a real, reactive, and functional application. We will provide you with practical examples and instructions using a hands-on approach that will give you a firm grounding in reactive functional principles.
The book will take you through all the fundamentals of app development within Scala as you build an application piece by piece. We’ve made sure to incorporate everything you need from setting up to building reports and scaling architecture. This book also covers the most useful tools available in the Scala ecosystem, such as Slick, Play, and Akka, and a whole lot more. It will help you unlock the secrets of building your own up-to-date Scala application while maximizing performance and scalability.
Style and approach
This book takes a step-by-step approach to app development with Scala. It will place special emphasis on functional language. It will teach you the core benefits of Scala and the fundamentals of functional programming by developing a robust application.
