Another chance to hack with the London Scala community ( and the wider software development community.

Its a great chance to work with other developers discovering functional programming and other new stuff such as Play 2 framework, MongoDB, Travis-CI, Neo4j Heroku & Forcedotcom to get together and get creative.

LSug members started building a new website ( to manage their community, so you can either join in with that project or build your own web application or service.

We are inviting members from outside the London Scala community as many technical challenges and techniques are common regardless of language (github pull requests, using MongoDB, managing deployment, etc).
