In the last few years, Scala and Scoobi have become the standard infrastructure at eBay. That's due in part to Alex Cozzi, a member of their Search Sciences Team, who visited SF Scala to talk about his experience using the language and framework to develop MapReduce programs on Hadoop at eBay.
This is a fun talk connecting advanced languages, big data, and a website with a long history. Alex also gives you a few good reasons for bringing Scala to a startup near you.
