I have used scala for a number of personal projects. One that I'm working on right now is LabRAD, a system for distributed experimental control and data acquisition that I cocreated in grad school and which is used by a number of physics groups around the world. I'm rewriting the core using scala and akka.
I'm working on a startup in the quantified self space.
I have used GWT for client-side interfaces and am starting to work on scalagwt, in particular adding support for JSNI to allow closer js interop. On the server, I've used django for a few projects, but I'm planning to move to play with 2.0 coming soon.
I have played with Haskell, F# and lisp, but wouldn't call myself a guru in any of them.
I'm a physicist working on quantum computing, but mostly I like to code and I'm looking to get out of research and do a startup.
