Picking up Scala

I generally like to pick up one new language and technology every year. And these days the language that has me hooked is Scala. My interest in Scala shot up after the advent of social media web sites where concurrency is the biggest challenge.

I am reading two books on Scala right now.

Martin Odersky’s Programming in Scala 2nd edition.

Venkat Subramaniam’s Programming Scala.

The syntax is a bit complex compared to Groovy, but I think it’s just a matter of time you get over it. I plan to churn out some serious code in Scala in days to come.
