The Scala programming language gives developers the safety of a modern, statically-typed, object/functional language, but with development speed and flexibility similar to that of dynamic languages. Play 2.0 is a new web application framework that harnesses the Scala language to enable you to create high-performance, scalable, modern web applications with ease. In this session, we'll dive in to play, walking through the framework and discussing our experience using it in production, including at FortyTwo. We'll also demonstrate how easy it is to get up and running with Play by creating a working demo app from scratch.

Matthew Neeley

Matthew is a physicist who realized his favorite part about running experiments was writing code. So, after working on superconducting qubits at UCSB, where he obtained his PhD, and at MIT Lincoln Laboratory, he made the move to Silicon Valley and joined NetWallet to sling code full time.
