* Agile JavaScript Testing

With the recent surge in JavaScript popularity, and the advances in JavaScript virtual machines, serious applications can and are being built in JavaScript. As the sophistication of these apps grow, so grows the need for verifying that our code continues to work as we expect. We'll briefly cover the advantages of test driven development, the reasons for pushing it all the way to the browser level, and then explore the options for testing JavaScript, look at some examples, and then integrate the tests into our existing development workflow.

* Scala for recovering Java developers

Scala is a functional/object-oriented hybrid language that runs on the JVM or the CLR. Scala is fully compatible with Java and brings many powerful features to the JVM, features such as: the ability to easily create DSL's due to Scala's ability to define methods for most operators, easily target multi-core hardware as Scala's types are immutable by default, access to the Actor based concurrency model, and expressive and concise code due to Scala's type inference and expressive syntax. All this without much of the boilerplate and cruft code that is so common in Java.
