Access Notes

Enter the Dekum building in the middle of the block on the West side of 3rd Avenue, between Washington and Alder. Meetings are in 4th floor basketball court.



Come join other Scala fans, whether you're a seasoned oldtimer or complete beginner. We'll have open discussions and a variety of presentations and examples. If you have topics you're interested in hearing more about or something you'd like to give a presentation on, please let us know! Also, feel free to bring code you'd like to show off or get input on from the rest of the group!

This month we will be starting a new format with the first hour of the meeting (now starting at 6PM) devoted to newcomers to Scala. If you have questions about getting started with Scala, how to set up a project, or advice on libraries, idioms or whatever, come by and join in. In addition, we have three very interesting talks lined up for those of you who want to dive a bit deeper:

  • Anthony Dupre will be talking about more Play Framework goodness including Iteratees and Numeratees.
  • Rob Norris will be talking about using the free monad to build pure APIs that manipulate mutable objects.
  • Leif Warner will be giving a talk on the Scalaz Stream library (https://github.com/scalaz/scalaz-stream), a Scala derivative of Edward Kmett's Haskell-based "Machines" library (http://hackage.haskell.org/package/machines).

We'll have pizza available at 6, so if you're planning to join us, come early if you're hungry!
