• Scala Project Night + Lightening Talks
    Join us on the third Wednesday of each month to work on scala related projects. Everyone is welcome, regardless of experience. If you need a little help experienced Scala developers will be there to get you moving again. Have a project you are working on and just need to find the time? Spend a few hours with other DC Scala members bringing your idea into existence. Even if you don't have a project join in the conversation, learn something new and share your experience. Food and beverages will be available at the start of the evening. A few minutes will be set aside for lightning talks (which can include showing us your project) and then we will move on to some social coding. Thanks to Snagajob Engineering (https://engineering.snagajob.com/) for hosting us and providing the food and beverages. Event Schedule 6pm - Networking, eat pizza, drink beer 6.30pm - Welcome to Scala DC by Salar Rahmanian (http://www.softinio.com/) 6.35pm - Announcements, people looking for jobs, people looking to hire, recruiters looking to hire (in this order please) 6.45pm - Lightening Talks & Project Show and Tell 7.00pm - Work on your Project, Learn from each other and Talk Scala 9.00pm - End of event Call for speakers Want to do a talk related to Scala (http://www.scala-lang.org/) at our next/future meetups, get in touch with us now: [masked]

  • Scala Hack Night
    An Scala Hack Night is a place to learn and make cool stuff together. As always, we will have pizza and beer for everyone. We will have an open mic at the beginning for members to do lightning talks or talk about and demo their scala project. After that we will work together to learn and create stuff! We love getting a diverse group of people, from beginners to experts, so if you are on the fence about coming out, just go for it, especially if: • You are new to Scala - Whether you are getting stuff installed or writing your first program, it will be way easier when you can talk to someone who has done it before! • You want to start a project - Maybe you have been eyeing Scala but don't know how it will work for your project. Fastest way is to ask us about the specifics or pair with someone here. Call for speakers Want to do a talk related to Scala at our next/future meetups, get in touch with us now: [masked]

  • GraphQL and Sangria (So long REST)
    Snagajob (https://engineering.snagajob.com/) is currently building an new API to support it's mobile applications using a Facebook technology called GraphQL. As an open standard, there have been multiple implementations of GraphQL in many languages. Despite being traditionally being a .NET shop, we've chosen to use the Scala (http://www.scala-lang.org/) implementation of GraphQL called Sangria to build our GraphQL instance. Come see how GraphQL can help make your APIs more efficient, documented and flexible. And how Sangria can help. About our presenter Jamie Pinkham is a Principal Engineer at Snagajob (https://engineering.snagajob.com/) and is responsible for the architecture and implementation of Snagajob's mobile apps. He's been developing for iOS for over 8 years. Event Schedule 6pm - Networking, eat pizza, drink beer 6.30pm - Welcome to Scala DC by Salar Rahmanian (http://www.softinio.com/) 6.35pm - GraphQL and Sangria (So long REST) by Jamie Pinkham 7.30pm - Announcements, people looking for jobs, people looking to hire, recruiters looking to hire (in this order please) 7.40pm - more networking, eat pizza, drink beer 8.30pm - End of event Call for speakers Want to do a talk related to Scala (http://www.scala-lang.org/) at our next/future meetups, get in touch with us now: [masked]

  • Gaining back pressure with Akka HTTP and Akka Streams + Spark 2.0 and EMR 5.0
    We are going to have 2 talks at this meetup: Gaining back pressure with Akka HTTP and Akka Streams (45 mins) Akka HTTP is close to loosing the experimental flag, and moving out on its own into its own module. Presentation on what gains are made from switching from Spray to Akka HTTP as a REST layer (hint: back pressure), and using Akka Streams to achieve asychronous behaviour throught the whole of an application. About the Presenter Zachary Pitts is a software engineer, currently employed by Nike Inc as a data plumber. He has been working with Scala professionally for over six years, and with Akka specifically for five years. He moved to Virginia from Oregon this last summer, and loves how much there is to do here! When not wrangling data, he spends much of his time with his daughter and wife, and otherwise playing board games if possible. Spark 2.0 + EMR 5.0 (30 mins) AWS EMR 5.0.0 (with Spark 2.0) is released in August, 2016. The engineering team at VideoBlocks has been an early adopter and use it to build models for related search and recommendation engines. This talk is going to demo their journey with EMR and how they leverage EMR to compute models faster with less cost. About the Presenters Yun-Sun Kang and Hung Lin are members of strategic-tech team at VideoBlocks. They are working with data and use data to improve content discovery and content recommendation for VideoBlocks customers.

  • Knowledge sharing and discussion: Implicits
    Let's discuss about this fundamental element of Scala language: Implicits. It is hard to use Scala without a good understanding of Implicits. Implicits goes from `(1 to 4).foreach(...)` all the way to fancy frameworks in scalaz. So, in this meetup, let's make sure we understand the essentials of Implicits. Erik (https://www.linkedin.com/in/eriklabianca) and Hung (https://www.linkedin.com/in/hunglin) will have some slides to talk about the different levels of implicits, then we'll have a group discussion about real world examples of how implicits helps our daily to daily Scala coding life. Pizza and Beer will be served at 5.30pm. The talk starts at 6pm

  • Property-Based Testing with Scalacheck and Spark | Mike Long
    Property-Based Testing with Scalacheck and Spark Abstract Property-based testing is a powerful testing paradigm that is available in functional programming languages like Scala and Haskell. Property-based testing offers a number of advantages over more traditional testing techniques, the main one being that test values are randomly generated and asserted repeatedly. More traditional unit testing tools like jUnit and its extensions(dbUnit, Cactus, JsonUnit ...) require that one explicitly create test data and explicitly assert the outcomes. In this presentation I will show how to do property-based testing using the Scalacheck library. I will show examples of property-based unit tests and property-based integration tests applied to Spark RDDs and more traditional RDBMs. About the Presenter Mike Long is a software engineer who resides in Winchester, VA. Over the past few years he has been making the transition from Object-Oriented to the Functional Programming paradigm. He has been programing professionally in Scala for the past 3 years. Before that he worked at IBM where he wrote software at the CIO Innovation Lab.
