There's an article I once wrote, which may be helpful to some:
Disclaimer: It's not *entirely* serious and full of academic rigour…
Daniel Spiewak's series "Scala for Java Refugees" is FAR more informative. It's very good, although a little out of date nowadays.

Sam here, some of you know me from the LJC but for those that haven’t yet met me I’m the chatty South African Evangelist at RecWorks
We’re seeing a growing interest in Scala from LJC members, especially juniors and graduates asking questions about Scala e.g Why as Java devs they should get into Scala, how to get into it and where to start.
We’ve heard of a few online courses and wondered which were good/worth looking into. Others have asked if they should just get stuck in with an open source Scala project and go the self-taught route. I’m by no means a coder so I thought it would be worth posting this here and getting groups input so we could put something together for Java developers looking to learn some Scala skills.
If you have any thoughts, please reply directly or through the list.
