SaaS Development in Java
Discuss the evolution of remote development of Java applications and the emergence of SaaS Developer Environments. Often times called a cloud IDE, a SaaS environment can eliminate configuration, increase collaboration, and alleviate management concerns around consistency, compliance, and velocity. In essence, SaaS developer environments can make agile, more agile.

John Lockwood
John Lockwood avoided the poverty of being a liberal arts Ph.D. dropout in the early 1990s by teaching himself how to program. Since then has played and worked professionally with a lot of fun languages. He's a Principal at CodeSolid Sofware Development, currently doing his second tour of duty as a Java programmer at VSP Global (this time at Eyefinity). In his spare time he's wrapping his mind around Scala, one of the coolest new languages targeting the JVM, and functional programming. December's presentation will be a sort of traveler's tale of what he found in the weird hinterland of Scala. We'll discuss all of this from the point of view of a Java programmer trying to understand what features make Scala cool and useful on the one hand, and what shortcomings make it difficult and obtuse on the other. We'll do a high level overview of functional programming and how Scala supports it, and we'll dig into some of the basics of the language as well as the tools such as the REPL and SBT (the "Simple" Build Tool).
