Scala Academy

This should be a platform for interactively learning about Scala using lecture and practice. Just like you would with a course at for example uni.

I would like to kick-off with a repeat (of parts) of the the basic Scala introduction Erik and I did for the Summerschool at the UvA. This includes presentations and assignments.

Future meetings could cover increasingly advanced topics.

Who would want to join?

    Hello, thanks, I liked the meetup, although I agree with the comments that it would be better if next time it is a little bit more prepared. Including people like me having sbt installed ;-P

    Otherwise was interesting to see the development process Age used.

    I typed along while he was demoing, pushed that code here: https://github.com/0x01/scala-hello-spray

    I could not include the case class and JSON stuff, because we need some of Age's files, pull requests welcome :-P.

    Thanks

    Great Initiative! The introduction was helpful. Looking forward to learning more about Scala now.

    I learned a lot watching Age explain and demo the usage of Spray. I am looking forward to future sessions.

    It was nice, but I followed the "advanced course" (about akka and spray with age) and there was no material prepared, so it all went a bit improvised and the levels were quite uneven. I'd suggest that Scala Academy meetups should only revolve around prepared lessons/material, to make the most out of it! :)

      Forgot: Since we're at Cupenya just moving from the Java Rest stuff to a full Scala stack, I'm gonna be checking out spray a lot and can probably give a quick "course" next time. I'm also willing to prepare it, but then everyone should be ready with sbt and so on, so we can do it within a time of, lets say one hour, and then there is enough time left for ad-hoc scala learning.

    Unfortunately I can't be there today. But I have nice reason - my son Misha was born on 7th of August. So I should help my wife to care about future Scala developer :)

    I was new with an one-day experience in Scala (but some more experience in Java and Haskell).
    East is East and West is West, and they will meet in Scala?

    Awesome opportunity to learn Scala together with other people.

    Graag kom ik morgen naar de Scala Academy!

    Dang, glanced over the fact its tomorrow :( would have loved to be able to make it.

    I can teach basic Scala, intermediate Scala, advanced Scala, Akka, and Spray.

      Anyone experience with JPA + Scala?

      August 12, 2013

    • Elmar W.

      We are (but soon were) using it, is easy enough to use, no major problems we ran into, but does not integrate well into a Scala programming style. You have to wrap some stuff around it to make it usable (kind of immutable, ready for asynchronous programming, etc.) . I can show you how we used it.

    triple bookrd again :/

    Still working to get a proper venue for Thursday. If someone has a good option, please let me know ;)

    August 8, 2013

    • Joost H.

      That would be great. I was present during the last meetup. Do you also have tables available?

      August 9, 2013

    • Jeroen R.

      Thanks Elmar, Daniel, Rockstart and Cupenya. You guys are great :)

      August 12, 2013

  • Joost H.

    Do people have some assignment/exercises they are willing to share? They are more than welcome!

    August 8, 2013

    • Joost H.

      Cool I'll look into it

      August 9, 2013

    • Jeroen R.

      There is a design for the website, but there's also enough backend stuff to do. Meetup API integration to get upcoming meetup / suggest new meetup, job posting section (CRUD) etc.

    Wow! That's a lot of people really fast.

    I will try to organise the meetup Thursday next week

    Good to see that there's a lot of interest in this already. @Joost could you plan this meetup somewhere this month? We have some things in the pipeline for September and October already ;)
