Chris Turner - Experiences from a Real-World Scala Project

IMPORTANT Sign up at skillsmatter:

How we built and delivered a real-world Scala project in a highly agile, multi-language environment with a team of mixed experience Scala developers. A tour through what we did, how we did it and what we learnt along the way.

A rough breakdown of my initial thoughts on the structure, something along the lines of:

  • Overview of the project
  • Team background
  • Technologies chosen
  • Scala in an agile environment
  • Working with developers new to Scala
  • Mixing Scala with Java
  • Challenges faced
  • A look at some of the code and patterns
  • What we learnt
  • The final result
  • What we would do different next time


We will, as always, also be heading to the Slaughtered Lamb pub afterwards.

    It was a great experience to be part of this talk. Chirs gave some interesting and important tips to adopt Scala into a new project.

    Great to hear about Scala from the trenches and to see some real world code.

    It was an excellent presentation. Chris was down to earth and practical about his experiences using technology that was fit for purpose.

    Very interesting insight into a large project with a number of legacy issues, well explained and provided a fascinating insight into both the technological and the management issues.
    (They should switch to sbt and scala-ide in eclipse though!)
