Discuss Scala Akka and Related Technologies

Discussion: Selecting Scala Technologies.

When starting a Scala project there are many options for technologies to use. In this meet-up we will discuss relative advantages of competing technologies and share experiences in using those technologies.

We will start by modifying and extending a list of topics and then voting on those topics. We will then discuss those topics that get the most votes. Some come with questions you have on technology selection and be prepared to discuss your experience using various technologies. Here is an initial topic list:

• Scala versus Java 8

• Play versus Rails

• SBT versus Maven

• Akka Clusters versus Zookeeper

• Akka remote actors versus REST

• Functional versus OO

• Mutable versus immutable collections

• Actors versus Futures

• Spray versus Finagle

• Eclipse versus Intellij


Informal networking starts at 6:30 with the discussion starting at 7.

WhitePages will be providing food.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
