Mar 2, 2017 Video - Sharing 2 years Scala experience Presentation at Voxxed Bristol 2017
In January 2015 we started on a new project using Scala with a team which had hardly any Scala experience. In this talk I share insights and experiences during a 2-year journey of using Scala/Akka in a real project, how the team learned Scala and slowly found it’s way into functional programming. It will include some best practices, pit-falls and lessons learned in both using Scala.

In Januari 2015 we started on a new project using Scala with a team which had hardly any Scala experience. In this talk I’d like to share insights and experiences during a 2-year journey of using Scala/Akka in a real project, how the team learned Scala and slowly found it’s way into functional programming. It will include some best practices, pitt falls and lessons learned in both using Scala and the interoperability with Java and Groovy. Some of the technologies we used are Akka, Spray, Finatra, Json4s, Neo4j.

Sep 4, 2015 Chaining rejection handlers To serve some resources via Spray, it’s as easy as using the ‘getFromFile’ directive. If you want to fall back to an alternative because the file is not available, you can define a RejectionHandler to serve an alternative file.

May 30, 2015 Workshop - Dive into Scala Workshop on NextBuild 2015
Scala is the fastest growing language on the JVM. It’s both OO and Functional and has build-in support for easily writing concurrent application to maximise the use of all your resources. Want to learn about Scala and get started right away? Then this university session is for you! Via live coding, I’ll show you how to setup a new project and you’ll learn thought code about many Scala features like Traits, Case Classes, Pattern Maching, Implicits, Currying, Lambdas, etc, but also about SBT and how to use Scala in a Java project. Bring your laptop, with SBT and Scala preinstalled, so you can follow along!

Jan 31, 2012 Starten met Scala in Java projecten Het is alweer twee jaar geleden dat Scala aan bod kwam in het Java Magazine. Scala is inmiddels een volwassen taal geworden en krijgt steeds meer aanhangers. Logisch, want Scala biedt nu al features die op z’n vroegst pas over twee jaar in Java zijn te verwachten. Dit resulteert niet alleen minder code, maar levert ook betere en beter leesbare code op. Veel Java projecten zijn echter groot en al jaren oud. Het is dus niet reëel om te verwachten dat zo’n project opnieuw in Scala gedaan zal worden. Dat is ook niet nodig, want Scala is zeer goed in te zetten in bestaande projecten.
