IMPORTANT This is a SkillsMatter event, we are just helping, please sign up at:
Scala and LiftWeb for Web Development
Franz will be presenting his experiences with Liftweb and Netty, as well as Web-Development with Scala in general. He will explain how Scala has enabled him to produce meaningful, stable and performing code and why it is endless fun for him!
The first part will cover a variety of topics ranging from Liftweb's amazing features and (few) weaknesses. You will be discovering Liftweb's frontend features like Comet-support and Desinger-friendly templates as well as how to draw a customizing Menu out of Lift's SiteMap.
The second part will be about using Netty out of Scala. You will be exploring ways to use Netty's low-level approach to deal with HTTP connections and how to use them out of Akka Actors. In-depth session on Long-Polling, Comet and WebSocket requests!
We will, as always, also be heading to the Slaughtered Lamb pub afterwards.
