This week in #Scala (16/11/2012)

Welcome to another edition of 'This week in Scala'! I have a bumper issue for you; there's been lots happening in the Scala world.

Firstly though, it wouldn't be right to continue without mentioning the excellent Coursera Scala class which reaches it's conclusion this coming week. The final deadline is looming and certificates are waiting in the wings for some of the 50K+ students that took part. If you are itching to keep on learning, then I recommend checking out the Scala Koans project. If you're not already aware, Koans is a Japanese term and has been adopted in programming to essentially mean broken unit tests. I'll let you figure out the rest about this learning approach. ;-)

Now, enjoy your Scala reading list...
