Nathan Hamblen is founder of a number of Scala free software projects including Dispatch, giter8, and the Scala release announcement site notes.implicit.ly. He is a co-founder of the Unfiltered toolkit for servicing HTTP requests in Scala, co-organizer of the ny-scala Meetup, and Director of Engineering at Meetup.
Scala Notebook provides a new way of interacting with the language, a middle ground between the austerity of the text-mode REPL and the grandiosity of an IDE. The project, based on IPython Notebook, harnesses the REPL to a local HTTP server so that you can work with Scala in the most popular interface of our time — the web browser.
Unfiltered and Dispatch are two independent libraries that are built with the same philosophy: HTTP libraries have no business telling you how to build your application. But in this workshop, we'll give you some ideas of how to do that.
Jon-Anders Teigen and Nathan Hamblen will build and explain an Unfiltered web site that reflects current real-world conditions using web services accessed through Dispatch.
