Why use Play?

Play consumes fewer resources meaning that your mission-critical applications will be more reliable, productive, and run at lightning fast speeds.

  • Improved developer productivity:

    Compiles and hot reloads code without the need to restart the server.

  • Reactive:

    Play is part of the Reactive Platform with commercial support by Lightbend.

  • Improved Error handling:

    Without the need of outside drivers.

  • Flexible:

    Play has many customizable features which can meld to your specific needs and easily integrates with the majority of libraries in the ecosystem.

  • Open Source:

    Play is open source so you can see what’s happening behind the scenes.

  • No downtime:

    Built in compile/reload (mechanism) means you can see code changes in Scala and Java without affecting client-side operations.

  • Increased performance and reliability:

    Leveraging technologies including REST, WebSockets, and JSON. (comet, EventSource)

  • Angie's List Case Study

    The Engineering team at Angie’s List knew that they needed to transition their site to a more modern, flexible and performance-based framework like Scala. Their rapid growth was not compatible with the current .Net legacy stack and they were finding the infrastructure to be inflexible, slow, and lacking the usability they required to move forward. When they needed specific expertise from highly experienced Scala developers for the transition, the team turned to 47 Degrees.

    Increasingly, organizations demand web applications that are resilient, interactive, scalable and even-driven to meet end user expectations. Reactive applications like these require sophisticated tools and middleware to build, deploy and manage them. The team at 47 Degrees has demonstrated impressive creativity and vision in this new space of reactive applications and we’re thrilled to have a working partnership as they continue to help build forward thinking web and mobile applications with Scala, Play Framework and Akka.
