I cannot thank you enough for your book, Atomic Scala. It is EXACTLY what I needed: a beginner’s programming book without comparisons to Java code on every other page. I was previously working on “Functional Programming in Scala” and it was too advanced for me! Though I am an experienced R user, Scala will actually be my first programming language. — Jonnie Lappen

About bruceteckel

Bruce Eckel is the author of Thinking in Java and Thinking in C++, and a number of other books on computer programming. He’s been in the computer industry for 30 years, periodically gets frustrated and tries to quit, then something like Scala comes along and offers hope and sucks him back in. He’s given hundreds of presentations around the world and enjoys putting on alternative conferences and events like The Java Posse Roundup. He lives in Crested Butte, Colorado where he often acts in the community theatre. Although he will probably never be more than an intermediate-level skier or mountain biker, he finds these very enjoyable pursuits and considers them among his stable of life-projects, along with abstract painting. He is currently studying organizational dynamics, trying to find a new way to organize companies so that working together becomes a joy; you can read about his struggles in this arena at Reinventing-Business.com, while his programming work can be found through www.MindViewInc.com.
