Hey Guys, Sam here,

Hope you all had a wonderful festive break and got some time off to relax. We are back with the first partner email for 2013 and looks like there are loads of exciting events to keep you busy in this icy weather. Hopefully we will see you all tonight at the Developer session

Now on with the events for the next few weeks

Tuesday 15th January - The London Developer Sessions
 You absolutely have to get to this event - it's the best place to come, drink beer and just socialise with other developers. Talk about projects you're working on, problems your facing, advise a grad or two or just come to discuss anything you like. It's a great chance to meet first time LJC members as well as seasoned professionals. Ged will be there with a few LJC Book club members. The RecWorks crew will be there to give any career advice or new job opportunities as well as a few Adopt a JSR advocates to help explain how you can get involved. Really what reason do you have not to come along?

Infrastructure automation is a key component of Continuous Delivery. Whether you use Puppet, Chef, CFEngine, or another tool, having an open and scaleable way of managing infrastructure as code is an enabler for reducing time and risk for deployments, allowing engineering teams to focus on more interesting and business-critical features.
To start 2013 in style, we're pleased to be joined by Andy Hawkins from Opcode Europe (originators of Chef) who will share his 20+ years of experience with infrastructure management and automation..

Wednesday 23rd January - Wille Faler: Scaling the Use of Scala
Adopting Scala on a larger project with a bigger team is a different experience from using Scala on smaller projects with small teams. The expressiveness of Scala, the ability to achieve the same result in many different ways is one of the languages strengths, but it also poses a unique set of challenges for bigger teams with varying levels of Scala experience. This talk will approach some of the challenges and pitfalls based on the experience of a long term real life project/programme. The talk will hopefully give the audience a feel for how to get Java developers cross-skilled into Scala, common Scala project challenges as a team grows and how to solve them, stylistic choices, patterns- and anti-patterns that may be useful to be aware of.
RSVP for this London Scala User Group event:

Thursday 24th January - Ouya Game Devs vs Fans
