What to expect from this meetup...?
"Fun with guns (*)" - by Manuel Bernhardt
In this talk / live-coding session we will explore a few tools to put a web application under test with one or two load-testing tools, then take measures to make it resilient to failure and responsive and check whether those measures worked.
(*) non-lethal guns. No servers will be physically harmed during this session.
-- Raffle of O'Reilly Scala books --
"SBT - The Past, The Present, The Future" - by Felix Amerbauer
Contents include: build tools through the ages, sbt basic concepts, popular plugins, the road to sbt 1.0., and much more...
"Scala.js and Play talking to each other" - by Sebastian Nozzi
A combined Play / Scala.js SBT setup will be shown. This setup makes it possible to share code between the Play (server) and the Scala.js (client) parts.
Through web-sockets and the uPickle serializer, you'll see how to send back-and-forth simple case-class objects. With this knowledge, you'll see how to implement a simple real-time, multi-user, client/server tools like a chat-application.
IMPORTANT: the architecture of this chat-tool (Play / Scala.js / Akka / Web-Sockets / uPickle) will be the foundation of an upcoming workshop, where we will code a multiplayer game in Scala! So, if you are interested in this: don't miss this session! :-)
(Depending on how we are with the time this will be a long talk with coding, or just a sneak-peek)
