A Beginner's Guide to Scala, Object Orientation and by John Hunt

By John Hunt

Scala is a brand new programming language built by means of Martin Odersky and his crew on the EPFL. The identify Scala is derived from Sca(lable) La(nguage). Scala is a multi-paradigm language, incorporating item orientated ways with practical programming. even if a few familiarity with common computing ideas is believed (such because the notion of compiling a software and executing this compiled shape, etc.) and with simple procedural language techniques (such as variables and allocation of values to variables) the early chapters of the ebook don't imagine any familiarity with item orientation nor sensible programming. those chapters additionally step via different options with which the reader is probably not wide-spread (such as record processing). 

From this historical past, John Hunt offers a realistic creation to item and sensible expertise utilizing Scala, one of many most recent and finest programming languages to be had. a number of thoughts are brought via useful adventure taking the reader past the extent of the language syntax to the philosophy and perform of object-oriented improvement and practical programming. 
Students, and people actively thinking about the software program will locate this finished creation to Scala and to item orientation and practical programming, invaluable.

You have seen how the data to be represented determines the objects used and that the interactions between objects determine the structure of the system. You should also have noted that objects and their classes, methods and instance variables are identified by more of an evolutionary process than in languages that are not object oriented. 10 Exercises Take a system with which you are familiar and try to break it down into objects. Carry out a similar set of steps to those described above. Do not worry about how to implement the objects or the classes.
