Deliver higher quality releases more frequently

The Typesafe Reactive Platform enables continuous delivery while also reducing risk.

  • Type-safety minimizes the chances of something going wrong in production.
  • Through a containerless deployment model, redeployments are quick and easy.
  • Play Framework is RESTful by default and has built-in JSON support making it a great choice for micro-services which help teams delivery faster.

Discussing Agility & Quality

Making The Case For Play/Scala - BBC

In this video from PingConf, BBC explores how they achieved management buy-in to take their team of PHP developers into a new world of Play Framework and Scala for the rewrite of its popular CBeebies children’s website. It’s not a technical talk. In fact, the title could be, "How to sell change into a big, multi-national organization so it’s not too scary."

The video discusses how the team got management buy-in by demonstrating skills transfer and success within a few weeks. Management and stakeholders never saw anything happen this fast. Plus, Scala’s cool factor made it easy to recruit, giving management comfort that the team made the right choice.

Boosting Quality with Akka/Scala - CCAD (Comcast spinoff)

CCAD (Combined Conditional Access Development) is a joint venture between Comcast and Arris Group (which acquired Motorola Home).

Scaling developer productivity, improving code quality and removing locking and contention were reasons that influenced CCAD’s decision to move away from the traditional Java-based stack they were using to look for more sustainable alternatives.
