|Modern Systems Programming with Scala Native (Pragmatic Programmer)|
|Friday, 21 February 2020|
Subtitled "Write Lean, High-Performance Code without the JVM", this book shows how to carry out bare-metal systems programming with Scala Native, an ahead-of-time Scala compiler. Author Richard Whaling uses a series of projects to introduce the fundamental and powerful techniques of systems programming, one by one. The book starts from the foundations of systems programming, including pointers, arrays, strings, and memory management. Projects include using the UNIX socket API to write network client and server programs without the sort of frameworks higher-level languages rely on, and designing and implementing a modern, asynchronous microservice-style HTTP framework from scratch.
