Lift and Scala at the Guardian Newspaper
The Guardian is one of the best known national newspapers in the UK. Their online presence, guardian.co.uk, has the second highest readership of any online news source after the New York Times!
The team behind the online site are gradually replacing their Java, Velocity, Spring and Hibernate stack with a combination of Scala and a suite of Scala libraries, including Lift.
Members of the team are in town for Google IO and have volunteered to share their experiences in making this switch. It should be an extremely informative and pragmatic evening for anyone curious about making the same kind of switch, or even just for finding out the libraries, tools and approaches they have used in the migration.
As always, there will be a few minutes for lightning talks before the main talk starts.
Thanks, and see you there.
As always please plan to arrive a little early to get into the meeting (security means the doors must be kept locked, so we will be running down to the lobby every few minutes to let people in until 7pm).
LinkedIn is kindly providing facilities and refreshments for the event. Check below for information and map:
As you turn in to Stierlin ct you will see signs for the BASE meeting, please follow those for parking and for the correct meeting room. The map shows one of the offices we meet in, but it could be different on the night, just follow the signs and you will be fine.
LinkedIn is kindly providing pizza for tonight's meeting
