I've been learning and using Scala at home Since 2009. I blog, sometimes about Scala, at http://www.grahamlea.com/ I've published a 'Scala+Spring+Hibernate+Maven Kickstart' project on GitHub: https://github.com/GrahamLea/scala-spring-hibernate-maven-webapp
Engineering Lead at Tyro Payments.
ScalaSyd is a great group of fairly friendly people. The group tries hard to accomodate both people new to Scala and people looking to advance their understanding of functional programming (FP). Talks are generally high quality. We usually have some good discussion after each talk (and sometimes during) and both newbie and hard-core questions are welcomed.
