Are you building a startup -- and what is it about? If not, what is the role of Scala in your company?

The Tagged app provides a fun social environment, we're hosting a party that users can join any time they want. We're heavily invested in relevance algorithms, recommendations engines, and advanced analytics, tools that help us understand people and shape social context. Scala is one of our favorite tools for this challenge.

Is your Scala talking to a web or mobile client, and if so, how?

We use Scala for a variety of back-end services. After starting with recommendation engines and analytics applications we've evolved and now see it as the default choice for new services.

Are you able to host meetups, and for how many, and/or do you like to present?

We have hosted in the past and look forward to doing so again.

What Scala technologies are you interested in?

So much -- DSLs with Scala are a current focus
