I have been programming in Scala for 2 years and have enjoyed reading
* Programming in Scala (Odersky)
* Functional Programming in Scala (Chiusano)
* Scala Cookbook (Alexandar)
* Programming Scala (Wampler)
This book should not be called Professional Scala. This is actually "Scala Phamphlet".
The book doesn't make any attempt to cover Scala language topics in detail. The book rushes through them in a jiffy (like in first 50 pages) and quickly jumps to things like SBT, Maven, ScalaLint, ScalaDoc, ScalaTest etc. and even there does a very cursory, and rushed job on explanations.
The authors chose a lofty title "Professional Scala" but have nothing to say about the language.

Publisher tripwires make this book unusable2019年2月28日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
This book is very reliant on presumable downloadable code from the publisher's website but the website is unusable for me at least. If you REALLY want this book and to be able to follow it then I recommend an attempt to register on their site FIRST to attempt to get the code before you buy it. They require registration before code downloads and that registration is what failed me. This mechanism comes off as an anti-piracy tactic hat I, a legitimate buyer, suffered from. This tactic should legitimately put a dent in their sales and I encourage any would-be buyer to protect themselves AND do justice by denying Packpub a sale. It's too bad because for all I know, the book might have been fine before they ruined it by doing this.
