A web enabled temperature controller / logger using Scala, Play 2 and Slick

Using a Beagle Board, and some other over powered technologies I'm attempting to make a web enabled temperature controller / logger to regulate the temperature of my beer while it's brewing. In this talk I will introduce the technologies used: The beagle board, an ARM based credit card sized computer which runs Linux. Play 2, a developer friendly web framework from Typesafe. Slick, a database query and access library for Scala. I'll also attempt to argue in favour of Scalas type system, which provides more compile time checks than javac, and gets in the way less when coding.

Speaker: Simon van der Sluis

Simon has been developing web and DB java applications for the last 10 years or so, the last 6 years at EDMI. Before that he had various roles at a company that designed Digital Microwave Radios. Outside of being a nerd I'm a keen mountain biker, and sometime home brewer.
