One more reason to learn Scala: Scala.js


Lutz Hühnken

Need another reason to learn about Scala? You probably don't but we found another, Lutz Hühnken will be using Scala.js which allows you to compile Scala to JavaScript. Join him as he builds a tiny Scala application and compile it to JavaScript.

You will learn how to set up the development environment and how to use JavaScript libraries such as jQuery from Scala in the process.

We will, as always, also be heading to the Slaughtered Lamb ( pub afterwards.
