This is a topic I'm very interested in, but these days I use Clojure almost exclusively. So my question is, how much will the book focus on Scala/Akka, and will the principles be easy to extrapolate to other functional languages?

Re: Language centric?
First, apologies for the delayed response. It took some time to get my userid/password sorted out.

Regarding your question, yes, the book will discuss lots of stuff which are language agnostic and applies to functional and reactive programming in general. But at the same time it will have a strong emphasis on static typing and how to use the power of types to make your domain model robust and verifiable.

So even if you are doing Clojure you can gain lots of insights as well. But unlike my earlier book (DSLs In Action), this one uses almost exclusively Scala.

Thanks.
