Hi Venkat,
Thanks for promoting your book here.
My questions are :
1. How is this different from Clojure?
2. What are the employment oppurtunities for Scala?
3. How do you predict the growth of Scala?
4. Are there any proven applications of Scala.

Hi Palla,

Here is an excerpt from the book:

"...Clojure, on the other hand, is a hybrid functional language. It is dynamic in nature and so is not statically typed. Furthermore,
its syntax is similar to Lisp, which is not the easiest syntax to work with unless you are familiar with it."

In response to your questions 2 to 4, I am very upbeat and positive, and what I've seen so far is very encouraging.

As for #2, employment opportunities in Scala, there's a site currently under construction to help with that: http://scalajobs.com

I hope this helps,

Forgot, the Scala web site has job info too. Check here: http://www.scala-lang.org/node/1700
