"Six Years of Scala and Counting", by Manuel Bernhardt "The Scala language and its environment have been evolving quite significantly over the past few years. The adoption of the language is slowly growing and it can now even be found in use in rather conservative enterprise settings. At the same time there have been quite a few criticism of the language, its ecosystem and its practicability in larger teams. Many developers are still avoiding to have a more serious look at Scala and its ecosystem for a variety of reasons ranging from the fear of good tooling support to the apprehension of advanced category theory principles. This talk is a reflection upon six years of working professionally with Scala in projects of various size and shape. It aims at conveying some of the learnings and practical insights gained during that time as well as to debunk some of the many preconceptions that surround the language and its ecosystem." --- (break) --- "Toprop.com: Looking Behind the Scenes of The New Home Page", by Matthias Langer "Toprop.com is a new real estate search engine made in Vienna. One of its key features are thematic maps for various metrics, like average rent prices, unemployment rates or even bar density. This functionality has been developed mostly in Scala, and I want to give you a brief overview over its implementation. You can expect to hear something about Spray and possibly Akka HTTP, dependency injection with macwire and load testing with Gatling." - - - - - - - - - - - - - - "Vaadin and Actors", by Otto Ringhofer • Overview Vaadin Framework • Session management in Vaadin • Vaadin Server Push Support with Websockets • Scaladin add-on makes easier to use Vaadin Framework with Scala • Design a library to bridge the gap between Vaadin and Akka actors (manage session state in actors, link received messages to Vaadin Push, seamless integration of actors in Vaadin Framework) • Chatroom demo using the library - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Sponsors: Stockwerk generously hosts our venue: irian is sponsoring Pizza: openForce is sponsoring the drinks: JetBrains will sponsor IntelliJ licenses, which you can win in the raffle.

Scala & Spark Meetup
31.03.2016 18:45 @ Stockwerk Coworking

It's official! We are doing a joint-meetup with the Vienna Spark user-group, all dedicated to Spark, with emphasis on Spark-Streaming. And we'll have a Lightbend engineer to talk about it! Luc Bourlier will be in Vienna for a couple of days, and he offered to give a talk (actually two!) about Spark. Agenda: • "Introduction to Spark: RDDs, DataFrames and streaming", Luc Bourlier (-break-) • "Reactive Streams, linking Reactive Applications to Spark Streaming", Luc Bourlier (link) About Luc: Luc Bourlier - Senior Software Engineer, Lightbend """Luc has been working on the JVM since 2002, first for IBM on the Eclipse project, in the Debugger team, where he wrote the expression evaluation engine. After a few other Eclipse projects, he went to TomTom, to recreate their data distribution platform for over-the-air services. He joined Lightbend in 2011 (back then: Typesafe) to work on the Eclipse plugin for Scala. Luc then switched to the Spark team, with a focus on deployment and interaction with other frameworks.""" Thanks to our generous sponsors, food (pizza) and drinks will be provided. Hope to see you there! - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - This event is sponsored by:
