Talks & Drinks

  • September 11, 2014 · 7:00 PM

Hey Scala fans!

We have two great new speakers, who will give two very interesting talks! 

We have Nilanjan Raychaudhuri from TypeSafe who already did great "recipes" at the Scala Days and we have Arnout Engelen who will speak about his experiences with akka-persistence and event sourcing. 

Play-ing with Akka and Slick like a Pro (Nilanjan Raychaudhuri)

"Ok you know how to Play. You have built few applications using it, now what? I say we go Pro. I will show you how Play developers are solving real world problems by mixing Play with Akka and Slick.

For example, how do you manage distributed application state in Play? Or how do you handle blocking operations? I will share their best kept secrets, patterns and tricks. So come down to Play!"

Building reliable applications with Akka-persistence (Arnout Engelen)

"You will be shown how Akka-persistence can be used to implement event sourcing in a real-world system. This will be Illustrated with examples of patterns and pitfalls. 

We will see how this can lead to elegant solutions for failure recovery, reliable message transport and separation of command and query logic."    

The planned program:

• 19:00 Food & Drinks

• 19:30 First talk

• 20:15 Quick drinks

• 20:30 Second Talk

• 21:15 More Drinks & Chatting

Come all and enjoy our meet-up!

    Here is a nice writeup of the LMAX architecture/disruptor pattern which was been discussed during the first talk: The reason of using a large circular buffer is due to the fact that queues/stacks don't have "mechanical sympathy" when considering huge workloads. Disruptor can work with multiple producer and consumers as well! If interested search for "mechanical sympathy Martin Thompson"

    Don't forget that next week the Functional Programming Principles in Scala course is starting again. I really enjoyed it last time, very well worth the time and effort.

    Is car parking available?

      It's in the middle of the center of Amsterdam so you can get lucky and park along the water but I never feel like endlessly driving around in search for a spot so I park in a garage that is easy to reach and tram/walk from there.

      It's made too easy to start a Scala group. At the bottom of the home page of Amsterdam.scala I found "Start a Heemstede Scala Meetup
      799 interested nearby". Probably it was in Noord-Brabant the same case :-)
