Async Coding in Play with both Java and Scala

Async Coding in Play with both Java and Scala

In this talk, I’ll discuss how Play offers an escape from thread pool hell, how it opens the door to real-time web applications (e.g WebSockets), and how to write asynchronous code in Java and Scala without getting stuck in callback hell.
