PDXScala Meeting, February 12th, 6PM @ Janrain

Come join other Scala fans, whether you are a seasoned old-timer or complete beginner. We will have open discussions and a variety of presentations and examples. If you have topics you are interested in hearing more about or something you would like to give a presentation on, please let us know! Also, feel free to bring code you would like to show off or get input on from the rest of the group!

This month we’re excited to have Rob Norris present on zippers, a technique for navigating (and updating) data structures. Notes for this month’s talk(s) are taken on etherpad.

If you have a topic you would like to discuss or present on, let us know on the mailing list or bring it up at a meeting.

Finally, as usual, the first hour of this meeting will be oriented towards people who are relatively new to Scala. If you have questions you would like to ask about general usage, specific libraries, or overall understanding of the ecosystem, we will be here to help you find your way. For everyone else, we will have plenty of extra time tonight for any other discussions and topics. Pizza will be here at 6, so come early if you are hungry.

Directions to the Janrain office and links to add the event to your calendar are available on Calagator. We look forward to seeing you all there!

This month, Susan Potter will show a couple of motivating examples of Scalaz usage showing how thinking more functionally can yield less complex code. More details on other talks and possible discussion topics will be coming shortly. If you have a topic you would like to discuss or present on, let us know on the mailing list or ping @tlockney on Twitter.

Welcome to the new PDXScala site!

For a while now, PDXScala has been running our blog on Posterous, but recent issues and concern about future development plans now that Posterous has been acquired led to the decision to move the site elsewhere.
