During the Øredev Open
there will be a session about Scala development. If can't make it to the Øredev Conference
you can still join this evening event!
So you are planning a new Scala project, but what build system should you use? Come to this session and learn more about two build tools that could be applicable for your Scala project.
In the first part of the talk, each presenter will introduce Apache Buildr and SBT, describe basic usage and how they tackle various Scala-related build tasks.
The second part of the talk will be a hands-on demonstration of each tool in the context of compiling/building/testing the Scalatra project and its example web application.
Presenters are Alex Boisvert and Uzi Landsmann
Alex is a software architect/engineer at Bizo and an open-source enthusiast. He is the creator of Stopwatch (Scala performance metrics library), co-creator of the JDBM project (Java embedded key-value store), maintainer of the Simplistic project (Scala SimpleDB bindings), committer and PMC Chair of Apache Buildr (Ruby-based build system for JVM languages, including Java, Scala, Groovy and Clojure) and currently working on his next project called "Revolute" -- a Scala-based query language for Apache Hadoop.
Uzi Landsmann is a Scala and SBT enthusiast and have been using and committing to open source projects for many years, lately as the owner of the SBT Jenkins plugin. He is working as a Java developer/architect consultant at Jayway.
The event is sponsored by Jayway
. This sponsorship allows a number of guests without conference pass to participate. But you have to register by Friday Nov 4.
The Øredev Open
is an evening with presentations, food, drinks and conversations with friends in the software development field. Doors open at 18:30 and closes at 22:00 so you are welcome before the session starts!
Again - if you do have a conference pass for Thursday you should not apply for a ticket here. Just come by!
