Where can I get good Scala play tutorial or is there good book for play 2.6.x?


#1

I am trying to learn playframework in Scala. I have working experience in java spring framework . but now I want to learn play framework. Can anyone help me giving some sources for learning play 2.6.x in Scala?

There are some sources I know:

  1. https://www.playframework.com/documentation/2.6.x/Home
    The official Play framework documentation, I read this several times. I think it is a good source if you are familiar with Scala and already have some experience with other web frameworks.
  2. https://www.amazon.com/Play-Practice-Building-Reactive-Application/dp/1491916087/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1509720359&sr=8-3&keywords=play+framework
    A book written by a Play framework contributor. This book will release in December, so I haven’t read it. I can tell nothing about this book.
  3. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLYPFxrXyK0Bx9SBkNhJr1e2-NlIq4E7ED
    A series of play framework videos.
  4. https://leanpub.com/modern-web-development-with-scala
    I haven’t read this book too. But looks this book is a good start for Scala beginner to learn web development with Scala.

thanks a lot, but these except the documentation are not of 2.6.x. Because 2.6.x is different from its earlier versions.

Hi Mahadi,

Thank you…

I am not aware of any such book. I keep hoping to find time to make a video series on Play, but life is always a bit too busy. Hope springs eternal, so I will say that it just might happen in early 2019.

Sir, I am your big fan. I learnt the basic scala from your book and YouTube tutorials. That helped me much to understand Scala. Latter with the help of Martin odersky’s book and others on Scala language I had been able to take me to the advance level of Scala programming. I am very glad to you sir.
It will be very helpful for other , if you make a full tutorial on play Scala.
I am also is wanting to make a full tutorial on Scala play framework. . I am inspired by your tutorials. We need to spread our knowledge to other.

Thank you for the kind words. Clearly a tutorial on Play is needed. If you can make one, that would be great!

Note that https://leanpub.com/modern-web-development-with-scala uses Play 2.6. (Perhaps that wasn’t the case in November 2017, when the original posts in this thread were made? Regardless, the book uses 2.6 now.)
