Welcome to this week in Scala! Judging by the chirping, it seems like Scala has had a great response from JavaOne attendees. I'm sure they'll be some great presentation content to come. Meanwhile, it seems some developers have taken a somewhat different angle to 'Scala adoption':

@ChrisHopcroft: I wish Martin Odersky was my Dad (only if I didn't already have one of course)

A-hem... So, onto this week's roundup; usual sections, different suspects...

New Stuff

Old Stuff

This week I offer you a presentation on combining JavaFX and Scala in the Cloud which was delivered at the JAX Conference held between July 9-12 2012 in San Francisco, CA.

Upcoming Events

Blogs & Tutorials

And finally, IntelliJ users will be interested to know that a Scala IDE-style worksheet feature has been requested. Hopefully it will be bigger and better!

Oh, did I say finally? Just one more thing, honest. Typesafe have been reminding folks about their developer contest. My idea is an app called GravatarPUSH. You know, I think Gravatar is a great service, yet so many social sites have failed to integrate and pull from them, so maybe it's time to build an intermediary to knit together the APIs and push? C'mon now, you think of an idea too... It's a great way to channel your Scala learning energy. Complete entries get a free t-shirt you know ;)
