We have a big night of talks on Mobile Applications. We have two speakers scheduled to talk about two core aspects of any good mobile application: the front-end and the back-end.

Stuart McCaul from Basho Technologies will present a case study on how Rovio is upgrading their back-end infrastructure to provide features like cross-device game state and score tracking. And Jim Fulton, CTO at Zope Corporation and long time Python developer, will present a case study on developing Android Applications with Scala.

We are co-hosting this MeetUp with our friends at DC Droids! Check them out at http

    Thanks a lot for sharing the Riak related insights wrt the Angry Birds use case. I also liked the Android dev/test lessons-learned and Scala overview. All very interesting.
