Welcome to the Vienna Scala User Group!

Upcoming events

Functional Programming Study Group #12
06.11.2014 18:00 @ openForce Information Technology GesmbH

Join us to discuss the book Functional Programming in Scala. This time we will will finish the discussion of chapter 13 "External effects and I/O" (we will pick up around 13.4.3 "Pure interpreters", but there will be a summary for people who could not make it last time). If time allows we will then move on to chapter 14 "Local effects and mutable state". We will  set up a Google hangout again for those of you who cannot join us in person. The link will be posted in the comments at the beginning of the meeting. What do I have to do in order to join? All you have to do is read the text (and RSVP).  But you will learn/benefit more in my experience if you also try to do some of the exercises.  If you put your solutions  somewhere publicly accessible (e.g. GitHub) or bring them to the meeting, we can discuss and compare different approaches What does presenting a chapter involve? There is no need to prepare slides or anything  like that. But you will need to read the text more closely to be able to summarise the individual sections of your chapter for us and lead and encourage the discussion. It will be your call to  separate the less important aspects from the more important ones, as we usually have only 90 mins in total for the discussion.

October Scala Monthly Meetup
28.10.2014 19:00 @ Stockwerk Coworking

Agenda: journi's Software Architecture by Christian Papauschek (~ 30 min) journi, a service for travel blogging, is built with the Play Framework and Slick and is deployed on AWS. Christian, their CTO, will talk about their architecture followed by a Q&A session. Please also propose questions in the comments below in advance, so Christian can tailor his talk to your interest. Development and Deployment of a Polyglot System by David Pichsenmeister (~ 30 min) At orat.io we are developing a comment plugin for online bloggers and publishers. Since the uptime of our software is very important, we try to apply best practices to our development and deployment workflow. Our system is based on different stacks, which includes the use of different languages like PHP, Scala, and TypeScript. This talk is about how we manage the consistency of our data-models through the different stacks, how the connection of our services is done through APIs and the deployment strategy of our system to get a nearly zero-downtime continuous integration pipeline. I'll also show, how we use code generators and shell scripts to automate code creation and tasks. Last, I'll show how we handle our database migrations. Sessions in Play? Is it possible? by Oleg Rudenko (~ 5 min) Keeping state in a Play Framework application. Our Sponsors for this meetup! There will be drinks sponsored by openForce GmbH!
