We are excited to announce that the third edition of Programming in Scala is now available!

The book has been updated to cover new features up to and including Scala version 2.12, such as:

  • Implicit classes
  • Creating your own AnyVals
  • String interpolation
  • Futures and concurrency, including new methods added in 2.12 and asynchronous testing with Futures in ScalaTest 3.0
  • Wildcard types
  • The close integration of Scala 2.12 and Java 8, most significantly the new ability to use function literals to express instances of SAM types
  • The latest recommendations for Scala coding style
  • New recommendations for writing hashCode
  • The context bounds syntax for typeclasses

As of today, both the eBook and paper book are in stock and ready for purchase. You can pick up a copy today at Artima or Amazon.

Also, for those of you attending Scala Days in New York, Martin and Bill will be on hand for a book signing on Tuesday, May 10, at noon at the Artima booth. Please come by and say hello!

Why doesn't Artima accept error reports (and show them publicly so other readers can benefit from them) as you imply that you will (by having the error page at http://booksites.artima.com/programming_in_scala_3ed/errata)?

I took the effort to submit about a dozen specific error reports (probably two or three months ago).

However, none of those reports appear on those errata pages (and neither did I receive any feedback that my reports were invalid or otherwise not accepted).

Sorry, this was my fault. I failed to turn on email notifications when new errata are posted for the book. There's a backlog of them. I'll start working my way through them on Tuesday.

Hi, I bought the Kindle version of this book from Amazon. In the introduction lots of nice features of the pdf version are described. Unfortunately these have been lost i the conversion to kindle format. On top of that, this is my first kindle experience, and I don't find it as good as pdf!
Does my purchase of the kindle version entitle me to the pdf version?
Thanks
