Welcome to another edition of #ThisWeekInScala!

Here's the last reminder from me about the "Principles of Reactive Programming" Scala class on Coursera. Still time to catch up with Week 1 and carry on if you don't delay!


Scala Street in London

While streets are being named after our beloved language (credit TechKickstart), some folk are still discussing whether Scala is enterprise-ready?! I mean, really, doesn't its use at Twitter, LinkedIn, Intel and many others already mean its enterprise-ready. I mean, people are using it in err... enterprises. Alright, you want more proof. I'll give you it: ING announced that they see Scala, Akka and Rlang as key technologies for their future.

Blogs & Tutorials

You know, I should mention that Owein Reese made me chuckle with his reaction to some incredulous code.

Finally, we're delighted at Cake to be hosting a Scala, Akka and Play hackathon alongside Typesafe in Manchester, a day after the Scala eXchange in London. Join us if you can!


That's all folks. You can get in touch with me directly via email or on Twitter (@ChrisCundill) with any Scala news, events or content. Tip: Tweet about your content using hashtag #Scala.
