Play Framework with Scala in Action

The Play Framework is an essential tool for building 'reactive' applications. It is a fully asynchronous web framework that is completely JEE-free. As part of the Typesafe stack, it is a key member of the Scala ecosystem. In this session we will cover the basics of the Play Framework, version 2.2 (the latest/greatest!). Learn the basic architecture and components involved in this lightweight framework. Learn how to start a project from scratch, manage your builds, test your code and get help when you need it. We will build a functioning RESTful application. Some basic knowledge of Scala is preferred. It is recommended that you attend the session 'Intro to Scala' as a pre-requisite for this session. This session will have Gists and code on Github, and a database on MongoHQ (which is free). I will also demonstrate all code in IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate Edition - so we can poke at things in the debugger. To follow along, you do not need IntelliJ - but you can always use the 30 day trial. Engineers with functional programming or Java experience will probably get the most out of the session, but if you don't have that background don't let it scare you off!
