The registration for the event is on RivieraJUG site:
Even if you RSVP here, I suggest that you register through Riviera JUG anyway.
Riviera Scala/Clojure and Riviera JUG are happy to organize a joint event for Thursday 26 April 2012: Soiréé Programmation Fonctionnelle.
We will present two hot stuffs in Scala and Clojure: The Typesafe Stack for Scala, and Overtone for Clojure, a live coding tool for creating music.
The event will take place in Auditorium Mistral Amadeus (so, it's not the usual The Green King). As usual, it's for free of course.
(The registration for the event is not opened yet. We'll put it online soon)
18.00 - 18.30 Opening (snacks)
18.30 - 19.25 Typesafe Stack by Luc Bourlier
19.25 - 19.35 Pause (snacks)
19.35 - 20.30 Overtone by Jeff Rose
Typesafe Stack (Luc Bourlier)
The Typesafe Stack is an integrated distribution providing all of the major components needed to develop and deploy Scala and Akka applications. The presentation will go through the different parts of the stack, starting from Scala itself and its core library. Then move to the middleware Akka and the latest addition: the Play framework, and describe how they can be combined to create truly scalable applications. The last part will be how Scala IDE and the other tools part of the Stack facilitate Scala development.
Luc has been part of the Eclipse Debug Team at IBM for the first iterations of the IDE. Following a few other Eclipse related projects, he worked a few years at TomTom creating on a distribution platform for services. He is now at Typesafe, working on improving the Scala development experience.
Musical Live Coding with Overtone (Jeff Rose)
Overtone is an audio synthesis and music making system written in Clojure. In this presentation I'll do a brief introduction to programming in Clojure so people can follow along with examples, and then I'll build a piece of music up from scratch, explaining the audio and musical building blocks as I go. You will learn a bit about audio digital signal processing (DSP) and computer music, and you will be prepared to start programming sounds on your own.
Jeff Rose is a software ninja at Deep Mind in London, working in the areas of distributed systems, artificial intelligence, and games. He has been experimenting with computer music ever since falling in love with modular synthesizers about 5 years ago, and he has programmed almost exclusively in Clojure since it was released.
