Hacking #scalasbt with @gkossakowski on @WarszawScaLa meetup in @javeo_eu

It’s amazing how much I could learn hacking with so many clever Scala developers in one room during 2,5-hour meetup of @WarszawScaLa. Today was the day of #Scalania 22 during which Grzegorz Kossakowski @gkossakowski from Typesafe explained the changes needed to get rid of blank lines found in *.sbt build files in sbt. Thanks so […]

Getting into Akka (and other Scala open source projects) by sbt

sbt once simple is Scala now (and simple, too?) Once I reached a certain level of confidence in my understanding of sbt, I’ve looked around for open source projects that use sbt as their build tool in order to get more insight on how much we could help each other. I’ve found quite a few […]

Go in Action from Manning and go installed

I’ve been hearing about the Go programming language here and there and when I’ve seen the freely available chapter from the upcoming book Go in Action from Manning I thought I’d give it a go. It’s an introductory material to Go and the why’s one could pick the language for the next project. What I liked about […]

WarszawScaLa UG coding session = Scalania 13 in Javart

I’ve been publishing my sentiments on the coding sessions called scalania under WarszawScaLa User Group on my Polish blog, but the ideas that are inspired by or spring out of them are worth spreading to wider audience and hence this one is here, in English (hoping that new ones come up or current ones got improved […]

project and projects commands in sbt

I’d swear I’d been looking at the class so many times yet it was only today when I noticed how powerful the commands – projects and project – are.

“What if I had” vs “As I have” – “observables” on data streams before the kid falls asleep

It has just struck me when I was putting my 2-year kid to bed… My professional career as a software developer was mainly zoomed in on what I’ve already had here and now with little to no use cases where I’d have had to compose computations that’d be realised at a moment in the future when I’d […]

Trying out different development environments for Scala – Sublime Text 3 + REPL in iTerm

I am still unsure about the right development environment for my Scala developments. At work it’s the very latest version of IntelliJ IDEA 13 with the Scala plugin (Windows 7) while at home I’m trying out other setups (Mac OS X). IDEA’s too much at times. I can’t seem to get fully up to speed with […]

Week 1 Quickcheck in Principles of Reactive Programming course on Coursera – 10.00 out of 10.00

I’m on the devoxx conference in Antwerp, Belgium. Too bad that the past couple of days I’ve been spending on Week 1’s Quickcheck assignment in the Principles of Reactive Programming course on Coursera. I simply couldn’t let it go past me without a solution that would give me the whole 10 points! I simply couldn’t. So I was solving […]
