Play Framework
Play is based on a lightweight, stateless, web-friendly architecture, and it makes it easy to build web applications with Java and Scala. Built on Akka and sbt, Play provides predictable and minimal resource consumption (CPU, memory, threads) for highly-scalable applications. I will be doing a presentation on the Play Framework, including actual code examples from my project.

Jeff is a professional software developer for 18 years, the first 13 of which I worked at a small software company in El Dorado Hills, doing mostly MS oriented programming (C++, VB, .Net, etc), but started working on Java and open source on the side. The last 5 years I've worked for VSP, doing Java and Javascript/web programming. The first few months I worked on Spring and Struts, until I was transferred to the VSP International Project (portals for Canada, UK, Ireland, France, Australia, Hong Kong, and Singapore), and I've worked on that project ever since. This project features The Play Framework as a major component of the tech stack.

The sandwiches, drinks and raffle gift cards will be sponsored by TEKsystems, Experis, and The Scheuble Group.
