SkillsCast coming soon.
We will show how to build a full Scala client and server application by illustrating it with a use case pushing the limits of what can be done: a distributed secure Social Web server.
We do this by using emerging W3C standards: using JSON-LD for distributed data  , the Linked Data Protocol 1 as a generic web API, with WebID for distributed authentication .
In order to avoid duplication of code and to give us maximum flexibility we have developed banana-rdf  - a scala RDF library that allows us to elegantly write code that can be used both on the web client using scala-js and on the server, whilst allowing us to change implementation with one line of code. On the client we gain maximum speed with a scala-js wrapping of the Facebook React framework, allowing us to write clean functional code.
This project is open source with more details on the wiki https://github.com/read-write-web/wiki/wiki
For those interested in digging deeper a hands on session will be organised in cooperation with OuiShare labs on Wednesday 10 th December in London.
