How long have you been using Scala?

I have been learning for about 3 months and have yet to write a large body of scala beyond simple examples to test out things I have learned.

Do you use a framework, like Lift or Play?

I have very little experience with web app frameworks, but I have recently been charged with building one. I have read quite a bit about both frameworks and I am leaning toward Lift. The architecture of the framework seems more natural to me, but I am not sure it is actually the appropriate fromwork for what I am trying to accomplish. Right now I am doing research to try to resolve that very question which is what led me to BASE.


Hello, I am a recent graduate of UC Berkeley. For the last several months I have been learning Scala, and I simply cannot get enough. I have read the O'Reilly scala book by Wampler and Payne, and now I am studying the new collections library.
