I have recently started to work on a new course for learning how to use the Play Framework. Its community version is already available for free personal usage at http://abelski.lifemichael.com.
So far I have completed the first two topics: Introduction and Jump Start. I believe that if you consider learning this framework then you might find the following short video clips highly useful.
You can find the slides as well as the other training resources I have already prepared for learning this framework in my free courses web site at http://abelski.lifemichael.com.
