This video provides an overview on how to deploy Scala, Akka and the Play! framework in the Cloud. Keep the battle-tested performance of the Java Virtual Machine, keep using your existing Java code, but jump ahead in developer productivity.
Scala offers a modern, developer-friendly way to code for the JVM. Akka implements the Actor model for event-driven parallel computation. The Play! Framework brings Rails-style simplicity and convention-over-configuration to the JVM. Combined with Cloud deployment, these technologies are a beautiful and practical way to create applications.
