Scala Hackathon!

Things to do at the Scala Hackathon

We're not using a rigid schedule, but we would like to know what you plan to do at the Hackathon. You don't have to be too specific; we're using this to allocate desks, etc. It's totally fine to come up with something on the spot too and you will have a chance to introduce yourself and your project at our stand-up at 19:00.

Work on your own project

So you have this awesome project you've been working on, but you could use some fresh insights, you’re totally stuck with some complex pattern matching logic or can’t decide whether to go with a relational, document or column based database? Team up with other hackers and make awesomeness.

Work on open-source

Every open-source project needs contributors. Found a bug in that lib you use every day? Team up and tackle those GitHub issues. If you don't know where to start, ask more experienced contributors to join.

Help out others

Don't know what to work on? Chances are someone wants to work on any of the above. Help them out with your expertise. A fresh pair of eyes always helps, even if you're a novice Scala developer, and you may learn something from it.

Agenda

    Thanks all, interesting evening!

    Here you can find some (Java) small programming exercises, which should also be solvable in Scala way:

    Curious about Scala

    I'm ill so unfortunately unable to attend :(

    November 26, 2013

  • Martijn H.

    If there will be any people who can help me out with sbt, that would be awesome. I hope to write a simple plugin.

    November 26, 2013

  • Joost H.

    I would like to experiment with connecting to and using DB in a dummy project

    November 26, 2013

  • Elmar W.

    Another thing: AOP in Scala, anyone ever did this? Macros or AspectJ come to mind.

    November 17, 2013

    • Jeroen R.

      Sounds cool @Elmar I'm curious about your experience :)

      November 21, 2013

    • Joost H.

      I use AspectJ both for logging and caching, very handy for injecting, without needing to change any code apart from adding the annotation. Interested in knowing if this can natively be done in Scala or a different solution is available.

    This is a bit offtopic, but I found it an incredibly interesting read.
    It basically shows the importance of having a basic understanding of compilers, and why it is very important to have the same compilers in one development team/environment.

    I could use some help migrating from Play 2.1 to Play 2.2 :)

  • Joost H.

    D'oh! I just noticed we clash with "8th Cross Functional AMS Meetup"

    November 14, 2013

    • Jeroen R.

      Ouch, well spotted! I moved it to Tuesday November 26 to prevent the clash

      November 15, 2013

  • Elmar W.

    I was interested in doing some advanced performance analytics of akka with zipkin and / or kibana and trying to get monitoring for distributed akka systems. Typesafe Console is kind of limited in this regard. The idea was to either do this by integrating it as part of a messaging protocol, Scala macros or classic AOP frameworks.

    Hey guys!

    Do you have ideas for hacks to share? We like to have some ideas prepared.
