I've been a bit coy about it on the list, but three months ago when I
joined the team at foursquare.com
I made the final decision that we
would port our webservers to Scala/Lift. It took about 3 months, but
is now basically running only on Lift(1). This
includes the website, a mobile website (m.foursquare.com
) and a simple
(but growing!) REST api (api.foursquare.com
I'd like the send a huge thank you to dpp and the rest of the Lift
team. You've built a really great framework here, and I look forward
to using it and seeing it grow for many years to come. An additional
thanks goes out to all those who have answered my many random
questions over the past couple of months.
For those who haven't yet found out about foursquare, you can read
more about it here: http://foursquare.com/learn_more
Anyways, that's about enough self promotion, but I did want to
officially let the community know about what I hope will be a fairly
high profile site that is using Lift.
(1) Haven't quite ported feeds.foursquare.com
, and there is a legacy
PHP based REST api that will live on for a bit longer as it supports
current versions of our iPhone app.
