The JaxJUG presents an introduction and exploration of the Play Framework, a full-stack web framework, built for scalability and ease of development and deployment. Built on top of Akka and Netty for asynchronous, non-blocking IO, together with a stateless architecture, this ain't your father's servlet engine! Take the ease of Rails, the speed of the JVM, and the flexibility and power of programming in Java or Scala, and this framework really shows its mettle.
This meetup will explore how to get started building a Play application, and will cover topics such as accessing databases, working with JSON and REST calls, routing, client-side programming, public assets, and streaming data using SSE and Websockets. Let's have a lively discussion on the future of web programming!
