During the play framework meetup in Berlin in November 2015:
for a better workflow between designers and developers
Laura made a very good talk about how to better organize the work between front-end designers and developers.
For that, her team build some tools:
the designer uses an assets pipeline in nodejs to build a website. The templates are written with handlebars. When the website is ready, a release is made and all assets are packaged as a webjar: https://github.com/lauraluiz/handlebars-webjars-demo
the developer uses a play framework application that is capable of using directly the assets released by the designer: https://github.com/lauraluiz/play-handlebars-demo
Project using this workflow: https://github.com/sphereio/sphere-sunrise
type classes in Scala
I introduced type classes in Scala: http://www.slideshare.net/yann_s/introduction-to-type-classes-in-scala
Step by step, I explained how the Json Reads/Writes/Formats work in the scala API of the play framework.
