    The door is locked. Is there a way I can call in?

    I'll be coming with about 3-5 people from my company. Our director of engineering had the following question:
    "If we use play and java 8, we gain a lot of of reactive design patterns and functional programming constructs. What exactly will we lose by not using scala and play in comparison?"

    Note from the Speaker:

    This isn't necessary but if some of you want to follow along when I do a demo they can follow these setup instructions:

    1. Download Typesafe Activator - http://typesafe.com/activator. Note: On Mac you can get this from homebrew.

    2. There's a number of Java8 activator templates I'll use snippets from, but I'll be demo-ing "Reactive Stocks (Java 8)" towards the end of the presentation. http://typesafe.com/activator/template/reactive-stocks-java8

    I'm new on the group. I've been living in LA for 5 months and I would like to be part of this meetup.

    Can you give me more details?

      Hi Roberto,
      We are a JVM languages user group in South Bay. We try to find speakers who can present on topics related. We meet once a month in El Segundo in VirtualTourist office. You can check out our previous talks here: http://www.meetup.com...­ to get an idea of the talks we have had.

      Hope to see you in one of the upcoming talks.

    Wow I'm so there. At Verifi, we've started to plan a POC with this exact architecture. I will try to bring people.
