Building Apis in Scala with Playframework2

My talk at Silicon Valley Code Camp 2013.

Two years ago I gave a talk on PlayFramework with Java at SVCC. As with everything, PlayFramework has evolved into a far mature ecosystem with native Scala support, and Typesafe backing. PlayFramework 2 is a simple, MVC-based, convention over configuration web application framework for Java and Scala. It is rapidly gaining popularity as more and more companies are adopting it for building scalable, performant, share-nothing architectures. In this talk I'll cover the fundamentals of Play! Framework2, a brief overview of Scala, and demonstrate building a simple, RESTful API. This will be a very interactive, and hands-on session. It'd be awesome if you have played around with Scala, but if you have not, the scope of this talk does not require you to be a Scala expert. It will however be very useful if you've worked with other Web Application Frameworks like Jersey, CXF, etc. so you can cross-relate the concepts.

  • lobster1234 Manish Pandit, Engineering Manager at Netflix For those who did not attend this talk in person - the ArrayBuffer on Slide 27 is the 'simplest' example of where you would use a real database in the real world. Never, ever use mutable state in your models! The methods in the model would all talk to a storage layer or a storage system and not a mutable collection. 6 months ago
