New Typesafe Training Course: Fast Track to Play

by Heiko Seeberger

We recently announced that the Play web framework is joining the Typesafe Stack. Play has always been known for its ease of use and developer productivity. The upcoming Play 2.0 release, which is built on top of the Scala language, Akka event-driven middleware, and the sbt build tool, will continue that tradition while delivering even greater performance and scalability.

While many of the concepts and features from Play 1.x carry through to Play 2.0, there are some changes and new features. Therefore Typesafe's Fredrik Ekholdt, a Scala and web application expert, and Typesafe's Peter Hausel, one of the main Play committers, have designed an all-new Fast Track to Play introductory course from the ground up. This one-day course will teach you everything you need to jump start web application development with Play 2.0.

The course program is as follows:

  • Play 2.0 philosophy and architecture
  • Introduction of the application to be created
  • Getting started with Play 2.0
  • The controller and routing
  • Views and templates
  • Forms
  • Caching
  • Working with JSON in Play
  • Ajax
  • Building non-blocking web applications

We are very excited to offer this new course for the first time on Monday April 16, the day preceding the Scala Days 2012 conference in London. More information and online registration for this course is available on the training section of the Typesafe web site.  We'll be adding more open enrollment sessions worldwide in the coming months.

Typesafe also offers dedicated on-site training for Scala, Akka, and now Play.  If you are interested in hosting a training for your team or company on-site at your facility, please contact us

We look forward to seeing many of you in London.
