  • Akka became the de-facto solution for Scala web development? | 2021-09-18
    Play, blergh for some, not blergh for others ;)
  • Scala or Go: Who Wore It Better? | 2021-09-06
    Scala became really popular with the advent of "Big Data" because functional programming lends itself so naturally to analytics, and the learning curve for modern LISPs like Haskell and Clojure is too high for too many. Apache Spark is built in Scala, and when it got big, Scala got big. Since then Scala has also become a popular language for other domains including reactive web applications and microservices with Play Framework and Akk and even the front end with Scala.js.

    Most of the identified smells are generalisable to other frameworks (specifically VRaptor, Ruby on Rails, ASP.NET MVC, and Play!).

  • Any devs that transitioned from node to spring?
    Is there a specific reason why you're learning Spring? Because it's probably the biggest Java-based enterprise framework you can find. That of course has its benefits in the job market, but it isn't really the best choice to get your feet wet in Java backend development. If your primary goal is to start developing REST APIs or web applications in Java/Scala, then I would suggest the Play Framework. It's more lightweight and in design more closely related to other web frameworks.

  • What is the state of frameworks and libraries support to build microservices in scala? | 2021-04-16
    While not a dedicated microservices framework you can definitely build microservices on top of Akka ( you optionally could use Play ( as well (its also built on top of Akka) for aspects like the web API

  • Is Play Feature Complete, or has Lightbend Pulled the Plug? | 2021-03-30
    Commits to Play have declined over time, and I'm wondering if this is due to Play being more or less feature complete, or that Lightbend effectively no longer allocates resources to the project? | 2021-03-30
    See my comment here from the issue in question.
  • The Modern Java Platform | 2021-03-16
    Java Play Framework is great. It's what Spring should be.

  • Will I like Scala? (Go and Rust) | 2021-03-05
  • Do you need to use an IDE to fit in in a professional C++ team? | 2021-03-01
    A while back I worked at a company where *everyone* used intelliJ for the play-angular stack we were working on. I've never liked IDEs because 1. they're bloated resource hogs, 2. they take a long time to master, and 3. they hide a ton of details under the hood. I much prefer using smart text editors like vim and vscode. I also much prefer creating bash scripts and config files so that every command/setting is in a clear place, rather than being buried within a complex sequence of mouse clicks.
