    I really recommend Hoare's CSP.
    The best paper in the Computer Science History ;)

    A spot opened up at 4pm, saw it at 4:15 - too late to make it. :( My takeaway fir the future is to always come, no matter if I'm confirmed or not.

      I always go by that rule. Meetup attendance is frequently 50% and almost always much less than 100% regardless of RSVPs

    How do you access the live streaming for the event?

  • Ed W.

    Just gave up my spot. Will watch online instead.

    Just gave up my seat for the next in line. Enjoy...

    Hey Everyone,

    I'll be responding to questions and comments for the live stream on Twitter. Feel free to tweet with the hashtag #scala to chime in! My twitter handle is @philmonroe.

    have a guest pass, gave up my spot for someone else

    Giving up my spot to whoever's next on the waiting list. Something came up, unfortunately. Hoping to watch either the stream or recording

    Streaming is great, but recorded works well too. I'll give up my spot to someone else. But please let us know when the recorded presentation is available.

    Bummer: I'm out of town (performing with Robert Fripp and the Orchestra of Crafty Guitarists).

      Do a Scala riff and think of us then!

      May 12, 2014

  • Mark G.

    Okay, now it's just getting silly. It's definitely time to start streaming 'em. Heck, you could even just have someone hold up a smartphone logged into Skype.

      I'll investigate options. I can't be there myself either!

      Mark -- please not that SF Scala works to get video sponsors for each and every recording, and live streaming comes at extra cost. Generally, we welcome companies & individuals who want to come forward and pitch in. In this case, Workday did, and there will be livestreaming. Thanks Workday!

    Here's a topic I would love to see addressed: possibilities for JVM that is tailored for the Scala's "lots of small objects/lots of garbaged objects" effective memory usage model, heavy use of anonymous class objects and templates (read: type erasure). And/or how the Scala compiler might be modified to address those issues going forward, so that functional style loops can be just as efficient as classic loops.

      , etc. Turns out <return> is the post button on the Samsung browser.
