This is our first Play! meetup. Come to meet other Play, Scala, and Java engineers if you're already using Play or are just curious to what Play has to offer. We'll be meeting at LinkedIn and food/drinks will be provided. Please spread the word; we'd love to have a great first showing.
We will have a giveaway for ebooks from Artima and Manning.
