Scala Central January 2017

19/01/2017   LinuxRecruit community  

We had a great January Scala Central event, with some really interesting talks on SAT solvers, microservices and Lagom, insightful conversations and pizza! Thanks to our speakers, to our host Equal Experts, and everyone who came along.

We decided to film the talks so that everyone can watch them, so below you can find embedded videos of each talk, which we hope you find useful.

Nick Skehin - A SATisfying Sudoku solver

Nick is a Software Engineer at Football Radar, and talked us through using a SAT solver and Scala to solve a Sudoku problem and prove that the solution is correct. You can try the SAT solver here.


Pascal Bugnion - Scala for humans: lessons learnt building Scala + Play microservices

Pascal is a Data Engineer at ASI Data Science, and talked to us about his experience building a data science platform, discussing some challenges faced building a suite of microservices using Scala and the Play framework, including how to develop an architecture iteratively. He also walked us through his ideas on growing a team of data engineers, ensure coding standards and maintaining code quality with this growth.


Tom Peck - Building Better Microservices with Lagom

Tom is a Solution Architect at Lightbend, and gave a great walk through of Lagom, their newest member of the Lightbend product suite. He explained how a message driven architecture can mitigate the inherent brittleness that comes with a microservice architecture.

We’re always interested in speaking to people who would like to present at future events -  so you if you have something interesting you’d like to share about Scala, please do get in touch, we’d love to hear from you.

Our next event will be on the 15th February, so make sure you keep your evening free!

All the best,  

Alice and the Scala Central team
