Update: Versal Group, the edtech platform of the future, has stepped up as the food sponsor -- we'll have Patxi, best Chicago-style pizza outside of Chicago!

Squeryl is the most widely-used Scala ORM today, adopted by many startups in this meetup as well.  Typesafe SLICK (formerly ScalaQuery) is one obvious alternative.

The talk will go Squeryl overview with pros and cons. Examples of techniques to leverage and extend the power of Squeryl, and a live programming session.

Jay Taylor is a native of the Bay Area, currently serving as Director of Engineering at SendHub. Previously he architected the Klout Perks Ad-Platform.  He has been using Java for the past 7 years, and has been very enthusiastic about Scala over 2 years.

    First off, I enjoyed the talk. Jay has an enjoyable, quirky style. But for this audience, I think he aimed a little low on the technical side, dwelling on basics like what is an ORM? Why do you want one? And so on. What was finally pretty interesting was some actual code samples, including some of his home brewed base classes. We could have used a lot more of that, and some more juicy examples like joins. Also, for all the time he spent trashing the PHP db api he uses, he could have given us some code examples to illustrate.

    Patxi Pizza is coming in 5 varieties! It will only be hot for a while, so be there at 6:30pm if you want it at its peak.
