Running Java, Play! and Scala Apps on the Cloud

Heroku is a Polyglot Cloud Application Platform that makes it easy to deploy Java, Play! and Scala apps on the cloud.  Deployment is as simple as doing a "git push".  This session will teach you how to deploy and scale Java, Play! and Scala apps on Heroku.
Play is an open source web framework written in Java.    Like Rails, Play uses a convention over configuration paradigm.  Play is written in Java but has had support for Scala since 1.1.     Starting from 2.0, the framework core, build and deploy tools will be completely rewritten in Scala.
Heroku is a platform as a service cloud offering.   Heroku was the first "polyglot" or multi-language  PaaS.   Initially Heroku supported Ruby and Rails but now supports, Ruby, Java, Node.js, Scala, Clojure and Python.   Heroku has been in development since 2007 and reports over 400,00 web applications running on its service.  
James Ward (www.jamesward.com) is a Principal Developer Evangelist at Heroku. Today he focuses on teaching developers how to deploy Java, Play! and Scala apps to the cloud. James frequently presents at conferences around the world such as JavaOne, Devoxx, and many other Java get-togethers. Along with Bruce Eckel, James co-authored First Steps in Flex. He has also published numerous screencasts, blogs, and technical articles. Starting with Pascal and Assembly in the 80′s, James found his passion for writing code. Beginning in the 90′s he began doing web development with HTML, Perl/CGI, then Java. After building a Flex and Java based customer service portal in 2004 for Pillar Data Systems he became a Technical Evangelist for Flex at Adobe. You can find him tweeting as @_JamesWard, answering questions onStackOverflow.com and posting code at github.com/jamesward.

The Detroit Java User Group


The Detroit JUG brings together members of the Metro Detroit software development community to share ideas, discuss industry advances and explore the use of Java, JVM based technologies, development methodologies and practices.  

 Our members are a community of like minded individuals seeking first hand, practical exposure to code, best practices, tools and cutting-edge solutions.  We meet regularly in the Metro Detroit area to network, attend quality technical presentations and to support the education of Software Engineering in general, and the use of Java and related technologies in particular. Meetings are free and open to the public.
