Charles,

We're all fairly new to Scala with the exception of Lex at this point, so we're all "unqualified". :)

That said, I think that would be great if you could share with us a mini-talk on your experiences with currying and creating new control structures. It's personally one of the aspects of the language that stuck out for me when reading the Artima book, and I for one would be interested in seeing some examples of it in practice!

Cheers,

John

I would echo the interest in seeing a DSL implemented in Scala.? The circuits example in the Odersky book left me wanting to see more.

As far as contributing, I feel pretty unqualified to do a whole talk, but I could demonstrate the use of currying to create new control structures, which is something I've played around with in a personal project.

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)
