De Nederlandse Scala Enthousiastelingen
Hi Scala enthousiasts,
I’m content to announce our next DUSE meetup featuring ‘Akka from the trenches’. We’ll have two speaker teams who present their real-world systems built with Akka and Spray.
18:00 - 18:30: Food & Drinks
18:30 – 20:00: Akka @ NS
Freek Wielstra and Age Mooij from Xebia have built a bulk message system for the Dutch Railways fully based on Typesafe’s Akka stack. After a short introduction of the system they will outline why they chose for Akka, how they applied it and which benefits it offered them compared to a more traditional stack. Finally, they will present various cool and elegant Scala code constructs they used in their application. All in all an excellent opportunity to gain insights in a real-world event driven system, the power and pitfalls of Actors and last but not least a great deal of Scala code.
20:00 – 21:00: Akka & Spray 4 Plot
Dirk Louwers from PlotProject will present how they used Akka and Spray for the backend of Plot http://www.plot-app.com/ , a location aware app that matches supply and demand for everyday needs. You will get an exclusive look in the kitchen of a startup with serious scaling and availability requirements built on Typesafe’s Akka stack that is part of the very core of their business.
I’m looking forward to seeing many of you for another inspiring Scala meetup with a good shot of real-world Akka, Spray-ed with sparkling Scala code!
