About the Book
This book takes a very practical and rather unusual approach towards the event sourcing architecture. Instead of diving into the DDD terminology, which is usually popular in the Enterprise, we will use this pattern to implement a typical Web application.
You don't need to be a Scala guru to understand code samples, but some familiarity with the syntax is required. If you're completely new to Scala, I highly recommend you go through the free sample of my other book - Modern Web Development with Scala. The PDF sample could be read in an hour, but it covers most widely used syntax constructs.
Which versions are used
The main examples use Scala 2.12 and Play 2.7. When additional libraries are needed, their latest versions are used.
