It looks like Shawn Gandhi’s HPC/Cloud Workgroup is really going well. He had a big crowd at his BYOL event a few weeks ago:
Shawn worked with Nikita Ivanov, CEO for Gridgain Systems, on a live coding workshop where participants bring their own laptops. They used Scala and Gridgain’s own DSL called Scalar, to create a simple cloud enabled map-reduce application which ran on on a grid setup using everyone’s laptop. They also created a little ping-pong algorithm using Scala and the actor framework.
