Scala in Depth book review

First things first. This book is 5 years old. FIVE YEARS! During this period of time Scala as a language has been evolving with a noticeable  speed.

Is it still relevant? Yes, it is. Apart from a few chapters that’s dedicated to Actors and collections this book still contains a lot of useful information for an avid Scala-newbie.
Am I kidding? Not really. The explanation of type classes that’s inside of this book is the best that I’ve ever seen.

Even if you don’t see a reason to read the book from cover to cover I would recommend  to skim through the “Type system” & “Using implicits” chapters. They’re highly comprehensive and will provide you with information that’ll definitely make your life as a Scala developer easier.

My score 4/5
