Scala is now an established programming language developed by Martin Oderskey and his team at the EPFL. The name Scala is derived from Sca(lable) La(nguage). Scala is a multi-paradigm language, incorporating object oriented approaches with functional programming.

Students and those actively involved in the software industry will find this comprehensive introduction to Scala invaluable.
