Tim Perrett - Scala Helix: the searchable cylinder of awesome

Oct 13, 2011 · London, United Kingdom

IMPORTANT Sign up at skillsmatter:


This is an informal session with Timothy Perrett, author of Lift in Action, the latest and most comprehensive book about Lift. This talk is the first public demonstration of his latest pet project: Helix.

Scala Helix is a central directory of all the projects within the Scala ecosystem and the project itself is built using Lift, Akka and MongoDB. During this talk you'll hear how in a very short space of time the system was assembled and made ready for use, and see first hand how different parts of the system are put together.

This talk includes short presentation and demonstration, followed promptly by Q&A / open floor in order for attendees to ask questions about certain features or design choices.

We will, as always, also be heading to the  Slaughtered Lamb pub afterwards.
