- Mobile Apps with HTML5 & Play Framework
In this session you will learn how to build mobile apps using HTML5 and Play Framework. We will start by building the RESTful JSON back-end APIs for the application with Play Framework 2. Then using PhoneGap and HTML5 we will create the client-side of the mobile app.
- Akka: Actors and More
Akka is a toolkit aimed at making it easier and simpler to correctly implement fault-tolerant distributed concurrent systems. At its core lies the actor model, inspired by Erlang OTP but implemented on the JVM. Akka has made a few addition to the traditional semantics, for example mandatory parental supervision, deployment of actor sub-trees by configuration and clustering. This talk will give an introduction on how to write Akka applications and then high-light some of the new features in the upcoming 2.2 release.
