Learn Scala from the expert

If you have already decided to learn Scala, you had better well plan your time and study Scala in the right way.

Believe it or not, the designer of Scala – Martin Odersky actually have a whole series of tutorials on Coursera where you can learn Scala at your pace.

I watched the first video and my rating will be 5 out of 5.

The explanation if very clear and all the contents and software set up are fairly up2date. Generally, it is a fun time.

What I have done today:

(1) subscribe to the Scala class
(2) Installed Scala, Sbt, JDK8, Scala-Eclipse and typesafe on my Windows machine
(3) created my first scala object and the interactive Worksheet.
(4) Call-by-name and Call-by-value will have their own benefits in certain scenario.
