Chapter 1 - A Scalable Language

Since my last post, I've been working through chapter 1 (A Scalable Language) in Programming in Scala. This chapter was an introduction to the language itself, showing the reader the advantages to using scala versus other OOP and functional languages. There were very few code examples in this chapter, however the ones that I did come across I've copied to my github project. I will continue to add code examples I come across in the following chapters to that project and make them available to anyone who wants to see scala programming.

On to chapter 2: First Steps in Scala.

Scala Time

Seeing as I'm still really interesting in learning scala, I decided to go ahead and order two scala books this week:

The first book is a beginner's guide to the language and more of a textbook whereas the second is more of advanced guidelines to follow to be a good scala programmer. I definitely look forward to starting the first book next week and learning this hybrid language in more depth.
