Re: [atlanta-scala] Next Meetup Ideas

Gabriel,

Thanks for the feedback. I think looking at something like ScalaTest is a great idea. At my previous job, I worked with RSpec and found it very useful once I got used to its style of thinking about testing/specing and now that I'm back in the Java world the contrast with JUnit is like night and day.?

So count me as interested in ScalaTest. In fact, I'll volunteer to present on it this coming meetup unless you would like to take a crack at it.

I think we'll probably want a multi-topic presentation though as it probably won't fill a whole meeting which as these meetings continue will probably become the norm: three to four smaller presentations by different people. At that is my experience with the Ruby meetup.

Cheers,

John

Just to throw some ideas:
If we keep in the tools/frameworks avenue, I would like to know more
about sbt and/or ScalaCheck/ScalaTest/Specs.
One hot topic: domain specific languages. External ones with parser
combinators and embedded ones just using the language.
(Probably embedded DSLs are simpler, maybe we can pick one domain and
try together to create a lang for that in some kind of DSL workshop)
And I always enjoy higher order/ functional tricks.

I don't have much deep knowledge but I can volunteer to present some
of those topics

On a side note, if the Holiday Inn is the same were the AJUG meets, is
not really downtown but I-285 exit 30 (but is not a bad location,
specially after the rush hour is over)
