Alvin Alexander took the circuitous route to software development. He managed to get a degree in Aerospace Engineering from Texas A&M University while all he wanted to do was play baseball. Once he became a practicing engineer he was volunteered to maintain the company's software applications, and quickly realized he liked it. As a result he ended up teaching himself Fortran, C, Unix and network administration, Perl, Java, Python, Ruby, Scala, and Kotlin. During this process he started a software consulting firm, grew it to fifteen people, sold it, and moved to Alaska. After returning to the "Lower 48" he self-published two books, How I Sold My Business: A Personal Diary, and A Survival Guide for New Consultants. Since then he has written three more books: Scala Cookbook; Functional Programming, Simplified; and Hello, Scala
