May Scala Monthly Meetup: Lutz Hühnken (Typesafe) - Slick & ConductR
20.05.2015 19:00 @ Stockwerk Coworking

Lutz Hühnken, Solutions Architect at Typesafe, will join us for this meetup! [Feature Talk] Slick 3Slick (“Scala Language-Integrated Connection Kit”) is Typesafe‘s Functional Relational Mapping (FRM) library for Scala that makes it easy to work with relational databases. It allows you to work with stored data almost as if you were using Scala collections, while at the same time giving you full control over when a database access happens and which data is transferred.The third major release brings it to a new level. It provides the new DBIO type for nicely sequencing your database actions, streaming results through Reactive Streams, and an asynchronous interface on top of the blocking JDBC API with clever threading and connection pool management.After a brief introduction and overview, we will explore the API through some code examples. [Bonus Short] Typesafe ConductRRunning multiple (micro-) services on multiple nodes in a cluster, in a fail-safe way, scaling them, and updating them, can be a challenge for the operations or devops teams. Typesafe ConductR has entered the arena to make things simpler: Build a bundle, load it into the ConductR cluster, tell it how many instances you want to run in parallel, done. I will give a very brief overview of ConductR, and a little live demo of ConductR in action. The speaker: Lutz Huehnken is a Solutions Architect for Typesafe. He has been working in professional software development since 1997. In this time, he has taken on different roles in the creation of web applications in various industries. His current focus is Reactive Programming - the development of fault-tolerant, highly scalable, truly distributed systems - with Scala, Akka and Play. Occassionally he talks about this on conferences, for example code.talks, devoxx, and JAX. He tweets as @lutzhuehnken.

Agenda: Akka (Cluster) in Practice by Peter Brachwitz (~ 25 min)A talk reflecting on our experience with Akka Cluster in a recent project.  Don't Waste Your Logs - Logfile Monitoring with ELK by Gerhard Hipfinger, openForce (~ 30 min)The ELK stack consists of Elasticsearch (realtime search cluster based on Apache Lucene), Logstash (logfile aggregation), and Kibana (HTML5 app to visualize JSON data) and can be used to bring astonishing insights in your collected log data. It does not matter where the log informations are from. Don't waste your logfiles and help your Dev and Ops team to better collaborate on logfile analysis. Apache Kafka by Dominik Gruber (~ 10 min)Kafka is "publish-subscribe messaging rethought as a distributed commit log". This tool is one of the most widely adopted Scala projects with users such as LinkedIn, Yahoo!, Twitter, and Netflix. Dominik will give a short introduction. Our sponsors for this meetup! There will be drinks sponsored by openForce GmbH!
