This book is a complete yet concise guide that reflects the major enhancements of Scala 3, from improved syntax and revamped type system to powerful contextual abstractions.Cay Horstmann, author of Core Java, covers what working developers need to know, focusing on hands-on solutions, not academic theory.
The material is presented in small chunks organized for quick access and easy understanding, with plenty of practical insights and focused sample code. If you're a Java, Python, C++, or C# programmer who's new to Scala or functional programming--or even if you've already used earlier versions of Scala--this guide will help you write code that's more robust, more efficient, and more secure.
