Re: [lsug] Call for London Scala UG Talks for next year

Hi Aneesh

One of the ideas I've had for a long time is to have a session on 'into to f# for scala devs' as I've alway seen the two compared but actually know very little about f#. 

As for doing events on 'scala is better than ....' then I dont think that is a good idea, So much of that it based on personal preference, what the task is etc etc. At the end of the day all languages are 'the best' at something, or people just stop using them.  While the lsug is to promote Scala its not at the expense of other languages.

Hi Guys

I haven't been to one of the events yet -- but will do so in Jan. Look forward to meeting you in person. 

I was curious if you guys consider bringing in some folks who have been building solutions in other languages and then have a session around Scala might handle those. Example: some Erlang folks to discuss a real problem and then demonstrate why Scala is a better approach.

Hi Andy,
Hope you're well!

I don't know if there's a talk in this, but I wrote a blog on an easy way to do CRUD in Lift.

Here's the blog post:

Here's the running code:

Possibly suitable for a joint talk with others? What do you think - is it suitable?

Hoping to get along tonight, so maybe see you there?

Cheers

Damian.

Hi All


It would be great if we could find some talks/speakers for the new year. Are you interested?

The talks can be a work experience (this is how we are using Scala at work) and a great way of letting everyone know a great company you work for because they let you use Scala. Or you work on or interested an open source project that you would like to demonstrate to the whole community and a great way to get more people to help you with the project. 
This could be on anything in the Scala ecosystem from akka/play2 to testing/functional coding and anything in-between   

While Scala evening is 60-90 minutes normally the 2nd Wednesday of the month this can be changed to another evening that is more convenient.  And if you don't want to do a whole evening then we could join 2 or 3 smaller talk, or have lightning talks to start the evening.

If you want to give a talk, or just have an idea for something, then please get in touch  [address removed]


Andy

ps: I would also be interested in what type of subject people are interested in. If we have requests then we may be able to convince somebody with knowledge to give a presentation.
