However, it is very often useful to look at ready-made products to make your Scala coding even more amazing. Here is a list of products you should use, or at least take a serious look at: (more…)
Friendkhana is a micro-surveys platform that allows merchants owners to know their customer better and to generate qualified leads based on social information.
Merchants using Friendkhana ask concise and direct questions through Quizzes, thus getting answers and social information about customers. With all of that data, they can categorize and cluster their databases and perform more accurate marketing campaigns.
They mainly use Ruby on Rails for their development and have an infrastructure based on Heroku and PostgreSQL. They host their code on BitBucket.

Coderockr is a consulting and development company based in Brazil. They are experts in web and mobile projects, and work with clients all over Brazil and overseas. They are also developing their own product: http://planrockr.com.

Introducing Expansiva Engineering
Expansiva Engineering is a consultancy company based in Barcelona, Spain.
They’re working on an internet of things project that has many different applications.
As an example, they aim to drastically reduce electricity power bills in companies using big machinery.
We’re talking industrial machines that have more than 200A or 400A and that waste a lot of power, and Expansiva Engineering aims at lowering power bills by controlling and monitoring everything around those machines: power, temperature, humidity, pressure or even lights.
But the platform doesn’t stop there; it can also monitor things such as refrigerators in a supermarket, issuing alerts before the equipment actually malfunctions and, in this case, preventing that the food (which translates to money) within it is lost.
Though the team is growing, they don’t have a very large team yet (they were founded just a year ago), but they’re working hard and put a lot of thought and effort into setting their workflow.
Colisweb is a three years old startup based in Lille, in the north of France; they are building software-defined transportation infrastructure.
The goal of their platform is to leverage data to offer same-day deliveries in as little as two hours or in a time slot of your choice.
While building systems that work with existing workflows, they’ll be putting in place the technical infrastructure to support all kind of mobility and flow consolidation.
Introducing 47 Degrees

In addition to our cloud SaaS product Codacy.com, we also offer an on-premises solution that our clients can install on their infrastructure behind a firewall. As we are seeing more and more companies adopting GitLab, we are happy to announce today that Codacy’s Enterprise version now integrates with GitLab.
After you enable this integration in your account you’ll be able to add repos with one click; private repositories are added with a unique private deployment key (to avoid key reusage).
This adds support for Merge Requests (each Merge Request is updated with a status once the analysis has finished), post-commit hooks (for faster analysis) and auto-comments (on the issue line).
The auto-comments integration in GitLab enables engineering team to directly get feedback in GitLab. Get new security, code style issues or best practices issues directly into your GitLab pull-request.
