What Alexy K. is saying about this Meetup Group

There is a lot of synergy between Scala and startups -- folks are running their startups on Scala, even internal "startups" within large companies. Scala saves you a lot of time and leverages existing jars for fast cloud deployment, and we'll continue exploring agile and lean approach to startups with Scala tools.
