Building Network Services with Finagle and Ostrich

Blake Matheny will speak about Tumblr's use of Finagle and Ostrich, and how to get started with them yourself. This will be NY Scala's first-ever talk focused on operations. (Apparently, there is this place called the "production environment" where your beautiful Scala code goes to fall over and die—who knew?)

Go ahead and git-clone Blake's finagle-starter-kit and we'll see you on the 27th!

    With pizza, beer, and one talk, we'll probably finish around 8 or 8:30. I'm expecting to get wet on my ride home. :\

    What time are we slated to finish up tonight? It may rain tonight, trying to decide if I ride my bike or take the train.

    Thanks guys, I added a zip code to the location and the pin moved from prospect park lake up to the flatiron where it belongs. We will not be holding meetups in any lakes unless someone wants to sponsor an ny-scala boat. (Which would be pretty awesome--call me!)

    Is Tumblr HQ in Manhattan or Brooklyn? I get different maps if I click on the venue name than when I click on the map link.

    It is possible to do that, at the event level actually. With that setting you sometimes have people automatically rsvp'd who can no longer attend (and may not realize they need to log in and free the spot for someone else), but I'll change it since it's been requested.

    Is it possible to change the settings on the group so that if you are on the waiting list and a space opens up, it automatically moves your status go going. As it stands, the site simply emails you and tells you that a spot opened up and you can change your status. However, usually by the time I notice the email, the spot is already taken, so it's a waste of time. May I suggest that it would be better to allocate space based on who RSVP'd first than who responds to the email first.
