This time we are going to cram 2 talks in. Double the excitement!

Talk A:

After years of getting fed-up with those snooty DOS and Nokia 3310 users lording their fancy snake games over us poor web users, I took some action and built myself my own snake game using Play, a fully featured, event-driven Scala web framework, and the Akka distributed concurrency framework.

The snake game is a fun introduction to these frameworks for anyone who is not familiar with them. I'll also do a walk through of the code of the game and we can have a discussion about how to make it better.

Talk 1:

Parsing English with 600 lines of Scala
