Event Description

Please RSVP on

Kevin Hester (ex-Google Android @Home) will present our first, and much requested, event on Scala. This is a big deal. Get excited.

What is Scala? "Scala is a general purpose programming language designed to express common programming patterns in a concise, elegant, and type-safe way." Read more about it.

After telling us a bit about what makes scala cool, he's planning a group lab using Scalatra (Rubyists, see Sinatra) to make a little web app.

Scala, widely considered* the last, best hope for humanity**... come find out why.

* by me. 
** read: Java programmers.
