David Pollak returns to Skills Matter to give a talk about Lift 3.0. Lift 3.0 builds on Lift's bedrock of abstracting away the plumbing of HTTP and allowing developers to focus on business logic.

This includes:

  • Using Scala 2.10's macro features to compile certain Scala code including form validation and actors into JavaScript the executes the same logic across the address spaces
  • Supporting asynchronous Actor messaging seamlessly across the HTTP connection and across address spaces
  • Detection of page building with Futures and Streams and automatically pushing those changes to the browser... doing page rendering across time
  • Simplified support for use of Futures and Streams in REST responses going across time
  • Enhancements to Lift's designer friendly templating system that gives the HTML side of the house more power
  • Automatic class reloading so that change to code get picked up on page reload without a restart... saving time.
