Bruce Eckel and Dianne Marsh are at CodeMash this week. A small number of early access copies of the book shipped here in time for the conference. This has give us the opportunity to preview it (print on demand is flexible like that) and have attendees look at it before the final version is available. We still have some work to do — add the index, incorporate suggestions from attendees at the conference, beef up the exercises a bit more, and add that ever elusive “one last atom”. But it’s great to see it in print format, and it was particularly fun to open it up here at the conference. Stop by the SRT Solutions booth (near Salon B) to see the book if you’re at CodeMash!
Next week, the Ann Arbor Scala Enthusiasts will welcome Josh Suereth at its inaugural meeting on Wednesday, January 16 at 6 pm. We have 3 copies of Josh’s book “Scala in Depth” (thanks, Manning!) that Josh will sign and give away at the meeting. Join us there if you’re in or around Ann Arbor. The meeting will be held at SRT Solutions, 206 S. Fifth Ave., Suite 200, Ann Arbor, MI 48104. It will start at 6 pm, and Typesafe is sponsoring food!
