Talks at Süddeutsche Zeitung

It's been a long time since the last talk at the Scala Meetup, so I'm happy to announce that Süddeutsche Zeitung will be hosting a meetup! There will be two talks:

Markus Jais
Concurrency with Akka Actors – an Introduction

This talk gives an overview about actor programming with Akka and Scala. It covers how to use Actors with Akka, fault tolerance, supervision and using futures with actors. The talk is intended as an introduction to Akka.

Lars Hupel
Scalaz: A View From The Ivory Tower

In this talk, we will explore some concepts of the (in)famous scalaz library: Data validation, robust concurrency, and updating of nested immutable data structures. Prepare for few slides, many demos!

Frank Thomas

Frank will give a lightning talk about the scalaz-stream, a compositional, streaming I/O library for Scala.

Talks will be in English.

SZ will sponsor food and drinks, so please RSVP! Also, we're looking for some lightning talks: If you're interested in speaking for 5 minutes about a library, your experience with Scala or something similar, please let us know.

Join or login to comment.

    I finally got around to uploading the videos. Markus' talk is already online, rest will follow.

    I apologize for the poor audio/video quality, but that's the best I could do with my non-professional camera :-)

    Three great talks in a very nice location. The live demo from Lars was very nice, especially when things did not work out in the first try :) Hope there will be more events like this. Oh, and thanks for the "Brezen" to Süddeutsche Zeitung!

    I've never been to Süddeutsche Zeitung. Is it possible to park in their underground garage? Or is there a nearby parking place, or I should better come by S-Bahn?

      Hm, maybe cou could try driving into our parking garage and tell the guy that you are visiting the Scala meeting. But there is also the possibility to park the car on the street.

    We have a third talk: Frank will talk about scalaz-stream. See you all tomorrow!
