At yesterday’s 010DEV developer meet-up, Typesafe and Lunatech presented Play and Akka to a room full of developers.

James and Nicolas live-coded a Play framework application that used the meetup.com API to select a competition winner from the list of attendees. Robert Bakker won a free place on the Fast Track to Play with Scala training course at Lunatech on 30-31 May 2013.
Locus Publicus remains a popular choice of venue, with the facilities this kind of event needs: a projector, a bar and a great beer selection. For this event, Lunatech sponsored the beer.
Although we created 010DEV to be a community of Rotterdam-based developers, this event attracted people from further afield, including five developers who travelled from Belgium.
