In December, Harryh from Foursquare presented the Lift Framework, the most well known and highly used Scala based web framework. Lift is great, but if you're like me then you like a healthy dose of competition. So where are the other Scala based web frameworks? Peter Kovac knows!

Peter will talk about:

The work he's been doing to integrate Scala into The Play Framework - which if you ask me (Dustin), is the best thing to come to Java Web Development since Grails.

Pinky, a REST/MVC glue web framework built on top of Guice and Guice Servlet 2.0, which boasts:

  • Out of the box support for REST via managed servlets
  • No learning curve (we are dealing with plain old servlets/filters after all)
  • akka integration
  • comet integration
  • Easy access to Request/Response objects
  • and a ton of other features!

Again, there will be Pizza and Beer!
