Hands on Scala: Writing a REST API using JAX-RS and Scala

Hello everybody!

We very recently reached 50 members! 50 Scala lovers willing to meet in Barcelona to talk about Scala, program in Scala and... yes, and to have some beers too.

So... hey, ho, let's go!

After some months of inactivity, we, the people behind funció and agilogy, have a proposal for this meetup group. Who's we? We are Jose Raya and Jordi Pradel (that's me). Our proposal? To develop a little application using JAX-RS, the Java standard for RESTful applications, in Scala. And we want to develop it live and from scratch. Everybody will be invited to participate either by pair programming with us or asking questions, contributing opinions...

How will we do it? Well, of course, in a 100% functional style and using agile techniques (like Test Driven Development and Behavior Driven Development). After all, we are agilogy + funció and this is our agile functional style.

Many, many thanks to the people at Itnig, who will be hosting the event at their wonderful office. And thanks to Moritz for the beers... Didn't I told you? If you are thirsty, you can grab some beers.

    Great! Behavior driven development in Scala for the masses. Very good introduction to this discipline and a A-grade for the event organizers

    Molt útil i constructiva. Em quedo amb l'interoperabilitat amb Java, ideal per n00bs com jo. I la cervesa és clar.

    I'm a newbie in Scala. I have the scala-ide for eclipse installed. Do I need to install something else?

    Hi Peter!
    Indeed, we'll use english (mainly). Some member may ask in catalan or spanish, but we'll translate those participations as needed.
