Sent on: Sunday, March 4, 2012 12:39 PM
Hi All

Thanks to Jan for the 'Spring and Scala' session and sorry I didn't manage to talk to you in the pub afterwards. Anyone who can do a talk from 'scala intro' to 'cake pattern' in less than 90 mins deserves much credit.

Must also give a plug for the weekly scala update blog 'This Week in Scala' from Cake Solutions, a list of updated apps and interesting blogs and articles. This weeks can be found here

This month (14th March) we see Ban with how he got on using anti-xml and Specs2 as part of a project for a client.
The following evening (15th March) is then the monthly Scala Dojo.
