  • Introduction to Interface-Driven Development Using Swagger and Scalatra Since it began life a little over three years ago, the Scalatra web micro-framework has evolved into a lightweight but full-featured MVC framework with a lively community behind it. Scalatra started out as a port of Ruby's Sinatra to the Scala language. Since then the two systems have evolved independently, with Scalatra gaining capabilities such as an Atmosphere integration and Akka support.
  • Adrian Cockcroft on Architecture for the Cloud In this interview we talk with Adrian Cockcroft, the architect for Netflix’s cloud systems team. We discuss how Netflix combines 300 loosely coupled services across 10,000 machines.
