Hello Daniela,

I have another question.
How does your book compare to Scala for the Impatient by Cay Horstmann (of course if you are familiar with that book)?

Regards,
Alex Khvatov

Hi Alex,
I haven't read "Scala for the Impatient", but I just quickly skipped through its table of contents.

Some of the topics do overlap -- since both the books are introductions to Scala -- but the structure is quite different.

My book is divided into units: at the end of each unit, my goal is to teach you how to build something extremely practical: by doing small projects at the end of each unit you will make sure you mastered what you have learned so far.

Also, have a look at my answer at https://coderanch.com/t/690437/Programming-Scala-people-scala-hard#3241018 for some other particular characteristics of Get Programming with Scala

Cheers,
Daniela
