Scala on Rails: Yet Another Web Framework as a Scala Gateway

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Skinny is a full-stack web app framework optimized for sustainable productivity for Servlet-based web app development. To put it simply, Skinny framework’s concept is Scala on Rails. If you're already familiar with the concept Ruby on Rails spread, you should be able to promptly work with it. Skinny is not only easy-to-understand one for Rails developers but also designed to be as friendly as possible to Scala beginners.

Skinny's components are independent of Skinny Web framework and are available as small libraries. Many projects I've worked on and am working on happily use Skinny's components such as Skinny ORM in Web applications built with Play, batch processing systems and scripts to automate tasks.

In this talk, I'd like to briefly introduce Skinny and do live coding a little to demonstrate the usability and the productivity of the framework.
