Hello, Scala is now available for sale, so you can buy the PDF, Kindle ebook, and/or printed book at this link.
Somewhere in mid-2017 I started working on a Kotlin programming book, but then I had to get away from it to work on other things.

Kotlin Quick Reference
But then when I started writing some Kotlin code again I realized that what I really needed was a quick reference. I didn’t want to have to dig through a tutorial book or website to find what I need, I just wanted something like a large cheat sheet where I could quickly find the Kotlin syntax and examples for whatever I was working on at that moment. So I decided to strip down what I had already written and create both a book and a Kotlin Quick Reference website.

If you or someone you know has a mast cell disease — a type of autoimmune disease — the tmsforacure.com website has several great infographics. I printed them out so I can take them to new doctors who don’t know me, when I have to go to emergency departments, and for things like my upcoming surgery.
