    Hi,

    please go to https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups=#!topic/scala-dub/V8bgBw0dZrg and answer, let's try to refocus this a bit :)

    I'm familiar with Scala/Actors.

    I have a little github repo where I have solved classical concurrency problems using actors: https://github.com/umatrangolo/scala-concurrency-problems

    If anyone is interested I can present one or more of them.

      So you could do something the 30th?

      April 12, 2013

    • Ugo M.

      Yes, I could

    I'm reasonably familiar with Akka and have used it production Java projects but Scala is somewhat new to me...

    March 28, 2013

    • Chris M.

      Although I've used it in JS (with Rhino) in the past, and for demo purposes it cuts down on the syntactic noise. I'm sure I have some code somewhere I could dig out.

    well, I could probably do something on the 30th, but maybe someone else wants to do some other talk? As I said I'm not an expert on Akka, just a novice, so I can provide some info but... :P

    • Alan L.

      30th suits me. I havent used AKKA in anger. So cant help out on a talk I'm afraid.

    Any dates confirmed? I've been toying this last weeks with https://github.com/alexanderjarvis/Play-DubSub so I can do something related if we need to add some talks (and obviously about Play, which is basically Akka + http)

    • Mario G.

      Great!! Why don't you suggest a date that suits you. I think everybody is waiting someone to do it :-). Maybe you can also talk to Ugo Matrangolo and Chris Mowforth in case they want to participate in the talk.

    Mainly to hear what people have to say about Akka and actor's benefits. Never used it directly, but I'm familiar with its concepts.

    April 1, 2013

  • Eoin W.

    I will be attending depending on the date

  • tcube

    If a venue is needed, may I suggest TCube - I'm helping the guys getting it up and running - https://www.facebook.com/TCubeDublin/page_map

    • tcube

      Someone will need to call through and set a date with them, and then they'll help promote it, provide live streaming etc

    Attending depends on date, of course, but I'm interested. I'll be working a bit with Akka soon, so I could give a very "starter" point of view and some explanation of the framework, but obviously I'd like some expert to chime in :)

    March 27, 2013

    • Mario G.

      Great! Pere I think the most important thing is to start knowing the technology. In fact what I was suggesting was exactly that, an introduction about how to install it, a "Hello World Akka" and maybe what were the more difficult issues you have faced so far.

      March 28, 2013

    • Mario G.

      BTW Can you add yourself to the talk?. The more the merrier :-)
