Cake Team Blogs

Cake Solutions architects, implements and maintains modern and scalable software, which includes server-side, rich browser applications and mobile development. Alongside the software engineering and delivery, Cake Solutions provides mentoring and training services. Whatever scale of system you ask us to develop, we will deliver the entire solution, not just lines of code. We appreciate the importance of good testing, Continuous Integration and delivery, and DevOps. We motivate, mentor and guide entire teams through modern software engineering. This enables us to deliver not just software, but to transform the way organisations think about and execute software delivery.



This week in #Scala (19/10/2012)

Welcome back to this week in Scala!

Firstly, some more solemn news. Phil Bagwell, inventor of VList and whose work was foundational to data structure implementations in Scala, Haskell and Clojure, passed away on October 6th and his funeral was held this week. Typesafe recorded Martin Odersky's kind words about Phil. He will be missed and left a lasting impression on all.

Now, onto a roundup of Scala content from this past week:

New Stuff

Old Stuff

This week I offer you a conversation from 2009 around the question "Why did Twitter jump over from Ruby to Scala" which still makes for some interesting reading:

Twitter on Scala

Upcoming Events

Blogs & Tutorials

And finally, if you're interesting in joining the Cake team on a permanent basis - writing Scala, Java and maybe even some Haskell - please do get in touch with Matt Penney.


That's all folks. Have a great week and remember you can get in touch with me directly via email or message me on twitter (@ChrisCundill) with any Scala news, events or content.
