In Jan's exciting, invigorating, Broadway-style live-coding session, we will build a Tweet mood analysis application. Jan will show how to use spray-client with the new Akka I/O to download the tweets. The application will then store the tweets in Cassandra and then attempt to perform simple mood analysis. Discover whether people are indeed happy about #Scala tweets and miserable about #Java8 tweets.
To make the most of the session, you will need to have basic understanding of Scala and conceptual understanding of Akka; you do not need to worry about Cassandra nor Spray. Everyone is welcome, though novices may find the pace too fast to follow.
