Some time ago, I was asked by Heiko Seeberger to provide some more information about our work at HolidayCheck using Typesafe’s technologies Scala and Akka. As we came from a classical LAMP (MySQL, PHP) development stack, we had to turn our company into one, which is using Java/Scala at backend and CoffeeScript/Node.js at frontend side.
I think holidaycheck.com is a great achievement. All this within 10 months (taking into account the 1st class of pages gone live end 2012). I am very proud of this.
