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

I am a DB engineer who currently has responsibility for supporting a Django/Python front-end to our manufacturing DB (MySQL). In the past this front-end was inward facing and as such, security and "looks" were not important. The UI had to "work", but it did not have to look good. For the future, parts of our internal database will become outward facing to our customers. This means security and "looks" both become extremely important. Additionally, performance (of the web based UI) will also become important. The scala + lift web framework seems to provide the secure functionality (+ ease of develop/deployment) that I will require to meet my future goals. I want to be a part of a community using scala + lift to learn best practices from actual users, and to share any knowledge or experience that I have that may be useful to that community.

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

New to Scala and Lift

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

I am a database software engineer. In my current position I am also responsible for a majority of the programming tasks related to one of our major databases.
