So you’ve probably heard about Scala and would like to learn it. How do you go about learning this language? There are a number of free Scala tutorials and books on the net. I’ve included links to 3 excellent free online books on Scala. Enjoy!
O’Reilly book on Scala: http://ofps.oreilly.com/titles/9780596155957/
1st Edition of Martin Odersky’s book on Scala: http://www.artima.com/pins1ed/
Core chapters from Scala for the Impatient (email address required): http://typesafe.com/resources/scala-for-the-impatient
Note: I highly recommend IntelliJ community edition + Scala plugin as your IDE of choice for learning Scala.
