As I try to organize things a bit around here, here’s a list of some tutorials I’ve written lately about the Scala collections classes:
There are times when I work on images a lot with Gimp, and then there are times when I don’t work with Gimp for a month or two. When I don’t work with Gimp a lot, I tend to forget about all of the different things I can do with. Therefore, I have created this page as a “Gimp special effects cheat sheet” page to help remind me of all the cool things I can do with Gimp effects.
In general the online Play Framework documentation is excellent, but one area where I needed more help was in seeing more examples of the Anorm syntax. To that end, here are some Anorm query examples, taken from a Play Framework application I worked on recently. But first, a little background about Anorm.
This short blog post contains a collection of Scala number and date examples. I created most of these in the process of writing the Scala Cookbook. Unlike the Cookbook, I don’t describe the examples here much at all, I just show the examples, mostly as a reference for myself (and anyone else that can benefit from them).
Scala numeric types
Scala has these numeric types:
In this article I share some examples of Scala’s Scaladoc syntax, including common Scaladoc tags, and the wiki-style of markup that Scaladoc supports.

An example of Scaladoc tags and wiki formatting
You can mark up your source code using Scaladoc tags as well as a wiki-like syntax. The following code shows many of the Scaladoc tags and a few of the wiki-style markup tags:
Just added a few more lessons to “Hello, Scala” including tuples, Scala + Swing, and a complete little OOP example. Also started a Github repo for it.
It’s still a work in progress, but I’m creating a Hello, Scala website as a simple, quick introduction for those interested in learning Scala.
When I wrote the Scala Cookbook, I gave each recipe and then each chapter my full attention. I thought that if I wrote each recipe as well as possible, and included important recipes in each chapter, well, I wanted each chapter to be worth the price of the entire book. That was my goal.
As a result of this effort -- and perhaps to the chagrin of my editor -- the Scala collections chapters ended up being 130 pages in length.
This is a list of Android code examples I’m starting to allow me to create rapid prototypes of Android applications using Android Studio. This is a very early list, I hope to be adding many more Android code snippets over time.
