Sick of heavy web application frameworks with endless amounts of boilerplate code?

Play 2.0 combines the ease of Rails with the power of the JVM into a web application framework that makes it fun to do web applications again.

This talk will be for beginners and intermediates of Play alike. The talk has two parts:
- the basics of Play and how to get started
- non-blocking behavior in Play applications

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