Scala/FP book, coming soon alvin April 9, 2017 - 9:19am

I just counted, and the latest version of my book on functional programming in Scala currently contains 90 short lessons and another 25 appendices. It’s going to grow a little more, but that’s where it is right now. I hope to have a first draft of it publicly available by the end of May.

Update: The first 600 pages of my book, Learning Functional Programming in Scala, are now available as a free PDF download.

First draft of my Scala/FP book, coming soon alvin March 29, 2017 - 6:47pm

Health (and other things) permitting, I hope to have a first draft of my book on Scala and functional programming (now titled, Learning Functional Programming in Scala) completed by the end of May.

It may only be in an alpha or beta state by then, but I’m debating about making it available as an Amazon ebook for a low cost at that time. I’ll be going back to work almost immediately after that, so if I don’t release it now, it may be another year before I can really finish it.

Update: The first 600 pages of my book, Learning Functional Programming in Scala, are now available as a free PDF download.

Software cost estimating in an agile development environment (PDF)

I’m currently working on a trilogy of “books” (booklets) about software cost estimating, and the third book in the series is about estimating the time and cost of software development projects in an agile development environment. The book isn’t complete yet, and some of it may not make sense without the first two books in the series, but I thought I’d release it here today, as almost everyone has some sort of “agile” development environment going today (or at least I hope so).

Play Framework Recipes alvin August 2, 2013 - 10:25am

Here’s the cover for my new, free PDF, Play Framework Recipes. (I obviously didn’t put much work into the cover, lol.) As the title implies, the book is a collection of cookbook-style recipes for the Play Framework. The book is about 80 pages in length, is currently available as a PDF, and will soon be available as a Kindle eBook. Here’s a link to more information on Play Framework Recipes.
