From the Foreword by Martin Odersky, Creator of Scala

Functional Programming in Scala is a serious tutorial for programmers looking to learn FP and apply it to the everyday business of coding. This Video Editions book guides readers from basic techniques to advanced topics in a logical, concise, and clear progression. In it, you’ll find concrete examples that open up the world of functional programming.

Functional programming (FP) is a style of software development emphasizing functions that don’t depend on program state. Functional code is easier to test and reuse, simpler to parallelize, and less prone to bugs than other code. Scala is an emerging JVM language that offers strong support for FP. Its familiar syntax and transparent interoperability with Java make Scala a great place to start learning FP.Inside:

  • Functional programming concepts
  • The whys and hows of FP
  • How to write multicore programs
  • Checks for understanding

This title assumes no prior experience with functional programming. Some prior exposure to Scala or Java is helpful.

Paul Chiusano and Rúnar Bjarnason are recognized experts in functional programming with Scala and are core contributors to the Scalaz library.

The definitive guide to functional programming for Scala and Java 8 developers!
William E. Wheeler, TekSystems

Shows you the approach and mindset to raise your Scala way beyond ‘a better Java’.
