Talks & Drinks

  • Apr 25, 2013 · 7:00 PM

We'll be listening to great talks and TomTom will provide us with food and drinks.

We can fit up to 30 people and RSVPs close at April 23, 7:00 PM (we need to provide security with the attendee list two days in advance), so be quick!

We've got the following talks confirmed:

- Vincenzo Vitale and Nami Nasserazad with "Scala at TomTom"

- Age Mooij with "From A to L, confessions of a beginning Scala library designer"

    Finally I did :)
    You can find my presentation at: https://speakerdeck.com/nami4552/scala-at-tomtom
    Sorry for long delay

      Question though, in this rest protocol you are doing a tell() and create a new actor in the process to keep the API responsive (in the API layer). But you can also use the detachTo directive to do the same, the difference here is that you need to extract the UUID from the requestContext am I right?

      May 29, 2013

    • Age M.

      The difference here is that the detachTo directive sends the Spray request content as a message to the actor you create (which has to then exract everything it needs from it) while what we do is to create the actor, passing it the request context as an argument, and then send it a message using the stuff we already extracted in the surrounding route handling code (i.e. the userId). It's a mater of style and requirements but both are valid approaches.

    Will the slides be available online somewhere?

    Thank you Age and Nami for these elaborated insights into the scala programming language / technology stack in general!

    Talks were inspiring. Great practical tips from Age!

    Awesome!

    Talks were great, learned a lot,
    being a diabetic though I couldn't eat any of the drinks/food that was offered, which were all gone by the time it got there (~19:30) anyway

    2 · April 26, 2013

    • Age M.

      I think we all learned a lot about how (not) to feed 35-40 people yesterday. Let this be a lesson to us all ;)

    Amazingly enthusiastic crowd. Loved the atmosphere and the quality level of the talks.

    Sorry, won't be attending due to sickness. Next time maybe. Enjoy.

    April 25, 2013

    • Jeroen R.

      Thank you for the heads up, see you next time ;)

      April 25, 2013

      And get back to health soon ;)

    Bleh, cannot attend. Other things requiring my attention. Have a wonderful get together.

      Ok thnx for the heads up, see you next time ;)

    Sorry for the late notice, but I won't be able to attend tonight. Hope you have a great meetup and see you next time.

      Ok thanks anyway for the heads up :) Hope to see you next time ;)

    Is there parking available or should I go to http://www.oosterdokparking.nl? 10,- is a bit steep

    April 24, 2013

    • Age M.

      Oosterdok is definitely the closest (as in 50 meters away) but it is indeed not the cheapest. The TomTom building is a 5-10 minute walk from the central station so any P+R parking will be pretty doable too.

      April 25, 2013

    • Joost H.

      I'm not going to take a bus to save just €2 ;)

      April 25, 2013

  • Erik H.

    Too busy to join talks and drinks. Hope to attend next time. Cheers.

    April 24, 2013

  • Erik H.

    I registered but I am afraid I will not be able to attend tomorrow. I am trying to keep up with the online Scala course from mr. Odersky. On Thursday evening I need to prepare a Friday crammed with appointments. I wasn't able to see this in advance. Apologies.

    April 24, 2013

    • Jeroen R.

      Thanks for the heads up. Can you change your RSVP to 'not attending'? Thanks and see you next time!

      April 24, 2013

  • André van D.

    Nice that a larger space has been found. I'll be there.

    Maybe someone can help me with the following:

    I am looking for a student interested in a Google Summer of Code project on an alternative way of specifying actor behavior. EPFL is mentoring the project, with me as project lead. The project is named "Enhance Akka using SubScript", the description is at http://www.scala-lang.org/gsoc2013. Google offers the student a stipend; there is no need to travel; we may visit EPFL once or twice though.

    This "SubScript' is an extension to Scala that I have created, based on the Algebra of Communicating Processes. Last month I gave a presentation about this to the Scala team at EPFL; I would like to do present this as wel in the near future for DUSE or Amsterdam.scala.

    April 23, 2013

    • André van D.

      Thanks Jeroen; my agenda is still empty for June.

      April 24, 2013

    • Jeroen R.

      Cool, it's probably going to be the 20th or the 27th ;) Next week we have more insight in that.

      April 24, 2013

  • Micha Hernandez van L.

    would love to do a lightning talk on wercker (the continuous delivery platform that we're building) and Scala!

    April 23, 2013

    • Jeroen R.

      Sounds interesting. Let's see if there's enough time left and otherwise we can do it next time. We have meetups in the pipeline already :)

      April 23, 2013

  • Jeroen R.

    Please note that the location of the meetup changed!

    April 23, 2013

  • Marko D.

    business trip popped up so will be out of country

    April 23, 2013

    • Jeroen R.

      See you next time then ;)

      April 23, 2013

  • Jeroen R.

    Cool we managed to get a bigger space which enabled us to clear the waiting list again! Thanks Age and TomTom!

  • Giorgio

    Someone suggested to have a moment for open discussion (we got a good one at last DuSE meetup), so would be great if you can share here your doubts, questions or just what are you trying to achieve so that we might have some guided discussion when we meet. (Alexander was it you proposing it, right?)
    Who's the first one?

    2 · April 22, 2013

  • Giorgio

    Given the big success of this event, TomTom agreed to allow us for some extra participants.
    We might have to squeeze a bit but I'm sure we'll manage!
    Looking forward to meet all of you guys!

    4 · April 15, 2013

  • Jeroen R.

    I've added new speakers to the agenda. Vincenzo Vitale and Nami Nasserazad will explain how they use cool technologies like Spray, Akka, Cucumber and Spec2 at TomTom. So, we have two really technical talks :)

    2 · April 9, 2013

  • Erik B.

    Too bad, but I can't make it next meetup :(. But I'll make sure to catch the one after that!

    March 28, 2013

  • Age M.

    Depending on the date I can do the talk I proposed for Scaladays. Here's the proposal:

    Title: From A to L, confessions of a beginning Scala library designer

    Abstract:
    After a few years of Scala application development, I recently made the shift to library designer and released riak-scala-client (http://riak.scalapenos.com/).

    I will show you the Scala features, idioms and patterns that I learned from studying other libraries and from writing my own. I'll explain what it takes to jump from the A levels to the L levels without having even a hint of Haskell experience! I will talk about type classes, context bounds, implicit resolution order, type aliasing, path dependent types, Akka extensions, the magnet pattern, and much more.

    1 · March 27, 2013

    • Age M.

      Since I currently work at TomTom and that day is still free in my agenda, this suits me just fine ;)

      March 27, 2013

    • Jeroen R.

      great! I put you down then :)

      March 27, 2013

  • Joost H.

    any indication for a date?

    March 25, 2013

    • Jeroen R.

      We're aiming for a thursday somewhere mid/end april
