Akka Projections - Ditch the Message Broker, Go Faster - Read Blog

“Week of Scala” with Manning Publications

At Typesafe, we are incredibly fortunate to have some of the top scholars in the Scala, Akka and Play Framework academic communities contributing to our technologies. As our roots are in academia, we are committed to supporting the ebooks that help developers learn the skills they need to be successful adopting new open source tools.

We’re excited to launch 'Week of Scala,' a joint promotion with Manning Publications where we highlight a new book each day that is special to us and hand-picked by the Typesafe team. We also collaborated with Manning to select a second book for each day of the week, and will be offering our choices at a 50% discount on their site! You can even read excerpts from some of the books online for free by clicking on the links below.

We hope you enjoy the deals! We’ll be Tweeting and updating our blog with the daily discount codes throughout the week, so stay tuned. Also, be sure to drop by the CodeRanch Week of Scala Forum to chat with these authors and other Scala junkies any time this week.
