Intro to the Simple Build Tool at LSUG

John at the London Scala User Group ran “LSug Workshop: Up-close and personal with SBT” yesterday at Skillsmatter.  It was a kind of mini-unconference, and I contributed an introduction to SBT.  The video above is the first half of a screen recording I made, and it continues into part 2 on Youtube.

I learnt a lot from the evening on how others use SBT, and from Maciej Matyjas talk on giter8 and plugins (including what looks like a wonderful plugin to Posterous). Phil Wills showed us how to create a SBT plugin, and that doesn’t look too scary now.

Skillsmatter should post video of the evening at some point, and Chris Tuner live blogged the event.
