PDXScala Meeting

107 SE Washington St., Suite 520
Portland, Oregon 97214, US (map)
Public WiFi



Come join us for another gathering of PDXScala, the Portland Scala users group. This is a casual group focused around the Scala programming language. We welcome both newcomers and experts alike.

Thomas Lockney will be presenting SBT (Simple Build Tool) as a convenient tool for exploring Java libraries with Scala. One of the primary benefits of Scala being available on the JVM is easy integration with existing Java code, but as any Java developer can tell you, it can take a lot of boilerplate to get started exploring a new library. Scala (and SBT) make it possible to shortcut through a lot of this excess code and get right to the heart of the matter.

Brian Panulla has generously agreed to be our first subject for a group code review. He'll be showing his program which converts an XML file to RDF/OWL and we'll have the opportunity, as a group, to look for ways to improve it.

We look forward to seeing you!
