Play for Scala: Covers Play 2 is published by Manning Publications in October 2013. This book has 328 pages in English, ISBN-13 978-1617290794.
Play is a Scala web framework with built-in advantages: Scala’s strong type system helps deliver bug-free code, and the Akka framework helps achieve hassle-free concurrency and peak performance. Play builds on the web’s stateless nature for excellent scalability, and because it is event-based and nonblocking, you’ll find it to be great for near real-time applications.
Play for Scala teaches you to build Scala-based web applications using Play 2. It gets you going with a comprehensive overview example. It then explores each facet of a typical Play application by walking through sample code snippets and adding features to a running example. Along the way, you’ll deepen your knowledge of Scala and learn to work with tools like Akka.
Written for readers familiar with Scala and web-based application architectures. No knowledge of Play is assumed.
