Learn the art of building intricate, modern, scalable concurrent applications using Scala
This book will give you an insight into the best practices necessary to build concurrent programs in Scala using modern, high-level concurrency libraries. It starts by introducing you to the foundations of concurrent programming on the JVM, outlining the basics of the Java Memory Model, and then shows some of the classic building blocks of concurrency, such as the atomic variables, thread pools, and concurrent data structures, along with the caveats of traditional concurrency. It then walks you through different high-level concurrency abstractions, each tailored toward a specific class of programming tasks. Finally, the book presents an overview of when to use which concurrency library and demonstrates how they all work together.
