Hi all.

I have fallen in love with Scala and am using it with the play framework. wanted to hear your thoughts about it.
I cannot seem to find anyone in Cape town using it.

Hi Duma,

I have two instances of Play in production (running on GAE) written in
Java. It's a great framework!

Hi Duma

Play, Scala, squeryl, and the rest of the scala ecosystem makes for a
great dev combination.

Our company is based in Cape Town (CBD) and we currently have a
position open that includes a significant amount of Scala dev.

I am posting the details below:


VMT (Virtual Mobile Technologies), creator of Ramp, is looking for a
world class senior
developer to join its team!

About Ramp:

The Ramp platform allows mobile enterprise applications to be
created in a fraction of the time and cost than previously possible.
The resulting solution runs on the majority of platforms
in the market (iOS, Blackberry,Android,J2ME etc.)
without the developer needing to be concerned with the intricacies of
each mobile platform and its challenges. By using the ramp platform it
is possible to create higher quality applications within a period of a
couple of weeks than was previously possible with a dedicated team
working for months on end.
