Hey folks, it's that time again! We'll be holding our April meeting on Wednesday at 6PM. I'm also happy to announce that we'll have pizza and drinks sponsored by Nick Luallin of Modis Recruiting.

Coursera will once again be offering the Functional Programming Principles in Scala course starting April 25th, so I thought that we could spend at least the first hour (which is "beginner" hour, anyway) talking about the course, what to expect, and any other preparatory topics might help those of you planning to take the course. Among other things, I'm happy to give another of my walk-throughs on sbt usage, we can help people with advice about setting up IDEs, or whatever else people might need to know before getting started.

Kevin Scaldeferri will also give an overview of some of his investigations into Summingbird and Spark for handling streaming data.

I'd love for people to bring projects they're working on, interesting libraries they want to share (could be yours or one you found online), or even just topics for discussion. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone and hope you all have plenty of great ideas to talk about!
