Let's actually write some real world Scala!
Let's face it - there aren't a ton of organizations promoting Scala in the #CLE area. Because of that, those of us interested in Scala development spin up little side projects, but are often looking to collaborate with others on something bigger / more meaningful that will give us a chance to really learn and push us past our comfort zones.
That being said, let's meetup and have a project kick-off.
A lot of us have some really good ideas for Scala projects and may have our own pet projects & open source projects we're already contributing to.
If you have a current project you'd like to work with others on, come prepared to pitch it to the group. If you have ideas for projects that you'd like to get started on, come prepared to pitch those.
By the end of the meetup I hope we can break out and pair up with some like minded folks about projects we're interested in and push the start of anything we come up with to Github (if it isn't already there).
From here, we can start working with others in this area to get some serious hands on Scala experience.
In case I haven't made this obvious: No experience is necessary - just a strong desire to work on a project written in Scala. :)
Location is TBD so I'll make that announcement in the upcoming week.
