Play All Day: Making The Case For Play

with Adam Evans

Adam Evans, Technical Lead for BBC Children's Future Media, presents "Making the Case for Play."

Abstract

In 2013 the BBC made an epic decision to rewrite their popular CBBC and CBeebies children's web sites in the Play 2 framework on Amazon Web Services. The Play Framework has radically simplified the toolset and architecture, freeing the development teams to deliver innovative new features. Getting management buy in, and delivering on our promises, has been a difficult but ultimately successful challenge.

Play All Day: Reactive Streams and Play 3.0

with James Roper

James Roper, Lead Developer at Typesafe, presents "Reactive Streams and Play 3.0."

Abstract

Reactive Streams has a lot to offer Play, providing an asynchronous streaming API that is easy to learn and easy to use from both Java and Scala. Play 3.0 will be embracing this new API as the base level IO API, but what implications will this have on Play's architecture? What will happen to iteratees? How much will this impact existing Play applications? This presentation will dive deep into Play's architecture, and show just how reactive streams will be applied to and improve Play.

Bio

James has been developing web applications for 10 years, and in that time has developed a passion for making developers lives easier. He joined Typesafe in 2012, and currently works as the lead developer on Play Framework.

Play All Day: About sbt-web and the Anatomy of a Plugin

with Christopher Hunt

Christopher Hunt, Senior Engineer at Typesafe, presents "About sbt-web and the Anatomy of a Plugin."

Abstract

This will be a talk similar to the one I provided at ping-conf in January, but updated given that 1.0.0 should have been released by the time the talk happens. sbt-web is a re-factor and enhancement the client side support in Play. Our rationale for sbt-web will be discussed along with an overview of the plugins available today. The anatomy of the various types of plugins will be discussed along with the new Play functionality that has been enabled by sbt-web. New functionality includes native JS compilation performance, support for JS source maps, asset fingerprinting, asset compression and more. In summary we believe that you should not have to jump outside of sbt in order to build your client side components.
