Presentation by me -- End-to-End Scala: A Case Study

For those who might be interested, I'm giving a talk next Wednesday at the Boston Scala Meetup, titled "End-to-End Scala: a Case Study in Integrating Akka, Play, Scala and Scala.js". It's going to be a fast dive into Querki's architecture and code, using that to illustrate how you can use the modern Scala ecosystem to build an entire huge application in a single language, with the front end, back end and APIs all written in pure Scala, within a minimum of boilerplate in the middle.

If you're at all interested in this stuff, I commend it to you. IMO, it illustrates one of Scala's "killer apps" -- the fact that I can add a new entry point to the system in *minutes*, fully reliable and type-checked, even with strongly-typed Exception propagation from the back all the way to the UI with essentially no hand-coded translation layers. It's amazing stuff, and lets me develop faster that I've been able to in any other environment, while still working more or less natively in the JVM on one end and JavaScript/DOM on the other.

And hey -- there's free pizza. What's not to love? Hope some of you can join us...
