    Dominik made very good book overview. Interesting topic about residing images (hot issue for me personally). Motivating presentation from Rafa (as always). Thanks to sponsors for food and drinks!

    I'm currently halfway through the "Akka Concurrency" book by Derek Wyatt and could do a 10-15 min review of it (Spoiler: It's really good) and present some topics that go beyond what the "Principles of Reactive Programming" course covered. Anyone interested?

      Ummm... it used to be possible for any group member to edit the agenda. I will see if meetup.com has changed that. In the meantime, I've made you event host so you can do that for sure.

      Thanks, I was now able to update the agenda. You can "downgrade" me to a normal member again now ;)

    From what I can tell from abroad the Vienna Scala User Group looks very vibrant, but I better make sure of by visiting in person ;-)

    Are you guys by any chance interested in me giving a talk or live demo about Scala and/or Akka? If so, please suggest some topics.

    After the meetup I'd like to go to Plachutta or some other awesome place (I know, there are numerous in Vienna).

    Looking forward to visiting Vienna again

    P.S. Ist die Sprache hier tatsächlich Englisch?

      Unfortunately I will be too busy in Q1, but I will come later next year. I Promise[A] that for the Future[A] ;-)

      Too bad! What about coming back in Spring (pun intended!) so we can go to a Heuriger afterwards?! ;-)

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
