By Mandira Srivastava, TMCnet Contributor
Typesafe has announced the release of Scala1 that will enable users to track conferences, trade shows and meetings more conveniently.
This mobile application enables users to organize their schedule from the list of events with one click, view session descriptions and speaker bios, mark important sessions and keep track of their favorite sessions and speakers and also personalize their conference experience.
Scala1 also enables you to track content related to Typesafe Stack, a software platform that helps developers build scalable software applications in Java and Scala. It also enables them to interact with other Scala enthusiasts near them.
Mark Brewer, Typesafe CEO, said in a statement, “As we have seen tremendous Scala, Play and Akka adoption within the last year and a half, it's very important for us to keep our community engaged and active, with the release of Scala1 at JavaOne, we're providing a highly interactive way for conference attendees to stay up-to-date on the sessions that we are hosting, as well as quickly locate other Scala, Play and Akka related tracks.”
Scala1 was developed with its partners, Tindr.co and Magnetic Bear Studios. It enables developers to find new Scala talks, learn more about who is speaking, and discuss the tracks in real time. The Scala1 app offers users to discuss conference conversation and share their experience with other app users through using the built-in Twitter (News - Alert) feed and chat functionality (iOS only). It can create completely new functions in Scala, directly within the app; the app is open source though GitHub.
Typesafe offers the most scalable software platform designed for the computing architectures of the future.
