Product Description

From the Back Cover

Scala is a new and exciting programming language that is a hybrid between object oriented languages such as Java and functional languages such as Haskell. As such it has its own programming idioms and development styles.

Scala Design Patterns looks at how code reuse can be successfully achieved in Scala. A major aspect of this is the reinterpretation of the original Gang of Four design patterns in terms of Scala and its language structures (that is the use of Traits, Classes, Objects and Functions). It includes an exploration of functional design patterns and considers how these can be interpreted in Scala's uniquely hybrid style.

A key aspect of the book is the many code examples that accompany each design pattern, allowing the reader to understand not just the design pattern but also to explore powerful and flexible Scala language features. Including numerous source code examples, this book will be of value to professionals and practitioners working in the field of software engineering.

Poor print quality, skeletal content. Not worth the price. 17 Dec. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was excited to see a pattern book on Scala and the publisher, Springer, normally has good books. This book is an exception. The content is shallow. If you have the GoF book, this might provide some guidance on the Scala implementations, but the quality of print and graphics is just not worth the price.

Some patterns have as little as 3 pages. Code samples are presented as graphic images and the graphics are horrible. The code samples are barely readable. Check out the Kindle version, the graphics don't get better in print.

The first 50 pages of this 327 pages book covers UML, that leaves precious few pages to cover dozens of patterns. AND, no index is provided.

Absolutely the worst Spring book I've ever purchased, and I own many.

Overpriced and incomplete 31 Aug. 2014
By BigJason - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
How did this get published? Feels rushed and incomplete. If you have ANY prior knowledge of design patterns you do not need this book. The translations to "functional" are poor and non-idiomatic. While not completely useless, the price would suggest much more quality than is actually present. I think with some more work this could have been a great asset. Unfortunately it falls very short.
