I'm starting to learn Scala, and looked over good books for this.

The leading one seems to be Martin Odersky, the creator of Scala, which already came out in 2nd edition.

What are the benefits of this book over the Martin's?

Hi Stas

Have you seen the online course that's starting soon run by Martin Odersky?

A little too much of a time commitment for me, especially since I think my research so far has exposed me to much of the content, but the previous time that course was run it seemed to receive excellent feedback.

Thanks, I already registered to this course (he naturally advises reading his book before ).

I did the Odersky Scala course on Coursera last year and it was great - lots of work but really interesting and good fun.

No more Blub for me, thank you, Vicar.
I agree. Here's the link:
