My talk from Silicon Valley Code Camp 2013.
Two years ago I gave a talk on PlayFramework with Java at SVCC. As with everything, PlayFramework has evolved into a far mature ecosystem with native Scala support, and Typesafe backing. PlayFramework 2 is a simple, MVC-based, convention over configuration web application framework for Java and Scala. It is rapidly gaining popularity as more and more companies are adopting it for building scalable, performant, share-nothing architectures. In this talk I'll cover the fundamentals of Play! Framework2, a brief overview of Scala, and demonstrate building a simple, RESTful API. This will be a very interactive, and hands-on session. It'd be awesome if you have played around with Scala, but if you have not, the scope of this talk does not require you to be a Scala expert. It will however be very useful if you've worked with other Web Application Frameworks like Jersey, CXF, etc. so you can cross-relate the concepts.
