Chapter 6 - Functional Objects

I've made it to Chapter 6 - Function Objects, and by the title of this chapter it should be a very interesting one. Seeing as I am a java guy, almost all functional ideologies are new to me and learning is good. Now, I don't expect this chapter to go into super deep detail about functional programming, but hopefully it gives me enough of a taste so that I am eager to learn more.

Now time for some more scala.

Done With Chapter 3

As you know, I've been working through Programming in Scala and I've recently finished Chapter 3: Next Steps in Scala. The first 3 chapters really expose the reader to the over-arching idea of the Scala language, what's the intention of it, how one might use it, and small scripts. I'm just now starting Chapter 4: Classes and Objects which should give me a more in-depth look to how to really setup an application in Scala. I'm still enjoying this new language a lot and I am posting all of the examples I come across to my github.
