Google Wave for Developers

February 16, 2010 @ 6:30 PM – Google Wave for Developers

Location Change

\!\! This meeting will be held at Matrix Resources

[Directions|] \- The meeting will be downstairs in the auditorium.


Google introduced Wave saying that this new online collaboration tool “reinvents email”. But they have offered developers a lot more than that. The Wave architecture incorporates many innovations since email – especially live cooperative editing. So Google challenges us to reinvent our communication apps with these possibilities in mind.

Wave is a big topic so the talk is organized in three parts with time for discussion:

1. Wave – Product, Platform, and Protocol.
An overview of Wave emphasizing the Wave platform for extension development.

2. Wave architecture – Patterns for development.
Approaches for using Wave’s live synchronization layer with new and existing web applications.

3. Development of Wave robots in Java.
The API for building Wave robots that watch user activity and respond with edits. Robot services range from simple text substitution to interfaces to existing web services.


Rick Thomas is an entrepreneur focused on the strategic design of cooperative work. From his past work in developing collaboration software for project and sales organizations – and his interest in the natural history of language – he offers a unique perspective on the potential for Google Wave to change the shape of our work and society.

Building and Deploying 12 Factor Apps in Scala and Java

June 20, 2017

The twelve-factor app is a modern methodology for building software-as-a-service apps:

• Use declarative formats for setup automation, to minimise time and cost for new developers joining the project.

• Have a clean contract with the underlying operating system, offering maximum portability between execution environments.

• Are suitable for deployment on modern cloud platforms, obviating the need for servers and systems administration.

• Minimise divergence between development and production, enabling continuous deployment for maximum agility.

• And can scale up without significant changes to tooling, architecture, or development practices.

We will build a RESTful web service in Java and deploy the app to CloudFoundry. We will go over how to build a cloud manifest, how to keep our database credentials and application configuration outside of our code by using user-provided services and go over what it takes to build a 12 Factor application in the cloud. This presentation will be heavy on code and light on slides!
