Scala , Sbt , Akka , Play

Welcome to another edition of #ThisWeekInScala!

As a bit of trivia to begin, Alvin Alexander pointed out that Apple are now up to six Scala job postings! Seems they like the language, which is good, 'cause a lot of us like their machines. Anyhow, that's not what you came here for, you came for this stuff...

Welcome to another edition of #ThisWeekInScala.

Holiday season is upon us in the Northern Hemisphere. Here's hoping you get plenty of time to chillax, recuperate and... learn some more Scala! Hope this helps...

Welcome to another edition of #ThisWeekInScala. My favourite #Scala tweet this week came from @Symbo1ics:

@nicolasleroux: It's not that #Scala or #FP are hard, but that people are afraid.

Welcome to another edition of #ThisWeekInScala.

My favourite #Scala tweet this week comes from @wilfredspringer:

The good thing about #Scala: it's unlikely there will ever be a book about it called: "Scala: The Good Parts"

Welcome to another weekly roundup of Scala content! There's lots to share this week, so let's leave the preamble out and dive right in... (I know, I know, you were looking forward to more of my hilarious jokes. Next week my friend, I promise.)

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...
