  • Hello Benoit,

    Sorry it took me so long to get back to you. One of the editors of this book shared this concerning the new topics that will be covered:

    "- Reorganize chapters to make information more digestible
    - Clean up text and make it more concise
    - Replace Specs with ScalaTest and ScalaCheck as the APIs for example tests.
    - In the first edition, we used a naming convention of foo-script.scala to indicate code example files that are run as "scripts", rather than pre-compiled. There is now a worksheet feature supported by the Scala plugins for Eclipse and IntelliJ. An informal convention of foo.sc is used for these worksheet files. Dean will adopt this convention for script files in the book.
    - New sections include: Pattern Matching, Scala for Comprehensions, Implicits, Advanced Functional Programming in Scala, Visibility Rules, Dynamic Programming with Scala, Tools for Concurrency, Scala: The Ideal Tool for Big Data"

    Have a great day!
