Gentle Introduction to Scala Seminars in Planning Stages

The Atomic Scala book edits are fairly complete, and exercises/solutions are in place. Some people would ship the book now. But Bruce’s experience with Thinking in Java and Thinking in C++ tells us that holding seminars from the book before unleashing it on the public offers a perspective that will make the content fundamentally more understandable and will lead to happier readers.

We like happy readers, so we will be holding two 5-day “Gentle Introduction to Scala” seminars in various locations around the United States. Participants will receive an early access version of the print book and enjoy a highly interactive seminar on Scala, using the book and “atomic concepts” for learning. Watch this blog for announcements on dates and locations.
