The next PHASE meeting is actually a joint PHASE/PhillyJUG meeting and will take place on Tuesday, October 2nd at 6:30 PM (7:15 presentation start) at GSI's headquarters in King of Prussia (address below).

Details follow.

Our sponsor is Typesafe ( ). Typesafe is the software stack for applications that scale, and provides a 100% Java compatible software suite that combines the Akka middleware framework, the Play web framework, and the Scala programming language.

6:30 – 7:00 Find a seat, eat some food
7:00 – 7:15 Introductions, raffles, announcements
7:15 – 8:30 Brian Clapper on Play framework

The Play framework is a high-productivity, scalable web application framework, with both Scala and Java APIs. Play is conceptually similar to popular web frameworks like Ruby on Rails and Grails. Like Grails, it combines the power and scalability of the JVM with the high-productivity of a modern, lightweight web application framework. In addition, its Scala and Java APIs provide a compile-time type safety that isn’t available in dynamic languages like Ruby or Groovy.

This presentation will provide an introduction to Play, exploring its features while comparing and contrasting its Java and Scala APIs.

Parking info:

Enter the main driveway at the GSI Commerce sign; park on right side of the building and enter by the Café doors on the side of the building. There will be signs on the main entrances to direct you to the correct door if needed.

NOTE: This is a joint JUG/PHASE meeting. If you are a member of both organizations, you only need to RSVP with one of them.

To RSVP to the JUG, send an email to Dave Fecak ([masked]) To RSVP to PHASE, do the usual Meetup thing. Don't sweat it if you RSVP both places; we'll figure it out. But only one is required. Dave and I will be combining the lists, a day or two before the meeting.

RSVPs will close a day or two before the meeting, as well; GSI/eBay now requires the names of all people attending these events, and we'll want time to merge our lists and get the result to them.
