Play 2.0, with Peter Hausel of Typesafe



In this presentation at the 2012 Northeast Scala Symposium in Boston, Peter Hausel, Senior Software Engineer at Typesafe, will introduce Play 2.0, a Scala (and Java) Web application framework and its core concepts.

 
The Play framework revolutionized the Java Web application development by bringing back simplicity and agility, contrasting the so-called standard way of writing enterprise applications. The whole Web architecture is fast moving towards real-time and new emerging requirements have put into question classic assumptions like SQL as the exclusive datastore technology, or the MVC application design.
 

The Northeast Scala Symposium is a yearly gathering of the Scala community, made possible by efforts of Boston, Philadelphia and New York Scala enthusiasts.
