Amazing. Great news. Good job guys. Wish I was there.

> I got back from Devoxx late last night and thought I would just post
> some thoughts and experiences from the event.
>
> Firstly, there was an awesome interest in Scala and Lift - my talk was
> really busy (~550 people) and the general Scala Enthusiast BOF right
> afterwards was packed.
>
> Myself, Bill Venners, Viktor Klang and Frank Sommers pretty much
> represented a cross-section of Scala projects at the BOF and
> throughout the whole week we were pretty much swamped with Scala
> questions and interest. Lift was getting a lot of attention and was
> even used by Oracle in the Devoxx keynote!!!
>
> Another event of note was when myself, viktor and john were sat in the
> hotel reception hacking on Scala and showing it so some interested
> people at around 10pm, the JavaPosse turned up and were like "wow, we
> appear to have stumbled upon the Scala geeks" - they then proceeded to
> join the hackfest which was über cool.
>
> All in all, a very very successful week and I think the above
> mentioned group did an amazing job of raising the profile of Scala
> even further; moreover, some of the Lift discussions were brilliant -
> appeared to be a lot of people wanting to convert from Spring bean
> hell ;-)
>
> We as a team should be made up with the awesome framework that has
> been created here -- the next 12 months I believe will be somewhat of
> a Scala / Lift golden age where we have the opportunity to really make
> our mark on the industry.
>
> Congratulations everyone!
>
> Cheers, Tim
>
> PS: If you were at Devoxx and came to my talk, thanks for
> attending :-)
