Hi, my name is Alvin Alexander. I wrote the Scala Cookbook for O’Reilly, and this is a website for my new book about Functional Programming in Scala.

The book is written as a series of lessons, where each lesson builds upon the previous lesson. Therefore I’m calling it, Learning Functional Programming in Scala. (I previously called it Functional Programming, Simplified, and frankly I think both names fit the book’s approach.)

Current status

In June, 2017, I moved the contents of this website over at my main website (alvinalexander.com). You can now find the lessons at this URL:

All the best,
