Title: To err is human

Abstract: In an ideal world everything would just work fine all the time. However, the real world is rarely like that which means we need to handle failures. Different programming languages have different approaches to modelling failure, but even with Scala there are numerous differerent ways of doing so. This talk takes a look at the various types of errors and exceptions you'll need to deal with and suggests ways to model them.

7:20 pm - Manu T S - Software Consultant - Call Handling

Title: Protocol Buffers - A case study in Akka

Abstract: Protocol buffers are a flexible, efficient, automated mechanism for serializing structured data with schema evolution

The session tries to go through a use case of protocol buffers in Akka covering the following topics in course
- Why schema evolution is important in data structures
- Defining and generating proto data structures with scala
- Serializing proto generated messages preserving schema
- Using protocol buffers with Akka

7:40 pm - Ben Parker

Title: Help me get a job : A live code review of a webservice written using akka-http

I am applying for Scala developer roles and one such interview process asked me to write a web service. I chose to use akka-http and attempted to test-drive the process with ScalaTest. I am fairly happy with the code but I could do with some constructive criticism from all of you. I am ready for all of your criticisms and suggestions. Audience participation is not only encouraged but required!

8 pm - Drinks and Refreshments

9 pm - Pub

See you there!
