Re: [lsug] The next Scala Dojo project

I would like to add my thanks to those of Fernando.
It's easy to take those meetups for granted but it takes time and resources to make them happen.
Thanks to you and Tim Group for hosting.

First of all I'd like to thank everybody especially you Pawel for organising the dojo. I think it was really productive.

From my point of view, i think we should continue with the same format and leverage all the setup work we had to do last time. If we continue working on the same projects, we can ideally start reaching more advanced code, patterns and actually see something more than a dummy code passing a test.

I strongly agree that having infrastructure to support the development will really help. Ideally we can go towards common project setups, so is just easier for everybody to concentrate in hacking away

Hey all.
I'd like to ask for your feedback on the last dojo's format - small
modules dependent on each other (at least when we wire them together).
Let me know what you think. Should we continue this format? What would
you change, add or remove from the way we did things?
I for one enjoyed it a lot (we managed to create something that worked
:)). I would like to integrate and test early (through tests and CI)
