    I've finally got around to posting my slides and the source code referenced in the talk here: I'll be following up at some point in the future with some blog posts reiterating the content of the talk, and carry it a little further.

    Hi all,
    For the Scala meetup tomorrow, the elevate requires a key pass to get up to the 9th floor after 5PM. We will have someone downstairs to greet and lead people up from 6-6:45. Afterwards, you can take the elevator to the 8th floor and walk up to the 9th. There will be people there in the reception area to let you in. If all else fails, and you are stuck outside, you can call me:[masked] and I'll get someone to let you in. Looking forward to seeing you all there tomorrow!
