 Bio

Darren Gibson, Software Engineer, InterWorks, Inc.

Darren Gibson, Software Engineer, InterWorks, Inc.

C# programmer by day, Scala programmer by night. I've worked professionally as a developer for InterWorks since 2010 doing various front-end and back-end projects involving PHP, Python, JavaScript, Typescript, Java and C#. During my time as a developer I've also learned other programming languages including Erlang and Scala. I'm a big fan of functional programming languages, especially the ones that are cross platform.

Scala 101

Scala: Object Oriented and Fun(ctional)! In this talk we'll cover programming on the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) with the Scala Programming Language. It runs on various platforms including the JVM, Android, Web Browsers, and Node.js. Due to its expressive syntax and powerful type system, it is often referred to as a 'better Java', but its numerous language features make it so much more than that. Topics to be discussed about this awesome language will include the what, who, where, why, and how of the Scala language.

Single Page Application Development with Scala/Scala.js

Scala: if you've ever desired to have one language to rule them all, this is it! In this talk, we will discuss how to create a Single Page Application (SPA) with Scala and Scala.js. Using this language, we will show how to implement everything from database queries to the CSS all in a type-safe way. We will also show how to create a type-safe interface between your server and client while sharing code between the two.
