### Announcement from organizers of the Philly Scala user group

Registration is now open for Scalathon 2012!  Scalathon is the 
International Scala Hackathon, which last year sold out with attendees 
from more than 10 countries.

The main event runs July 28-29 (Sat & Sun). It will include brief talks 
by representatives from many open source Scala projects. These talks 
will show you how to build, modify, and start contributing to the 
project. With this year's enhanced venue, the hackathon rooms will be 
open 24 hours a day, all three days, for anyone who wants to work 
off-hours. There will be projects for every interest and skill level.  
You can register for Sat/Sun here:

Friday July 27 is a special add-on day focusing on the "Anatomy of a 
Scala Project." We will have many workshops focused on setup, building, 
testing profiling, documenting, releasing, and hosting Scala projects. 
Due to its hands-on nature this add-on day is appropriate for newbies 
and the most hardened Scala developers alike. You must separately 
register for Friday: http://www.meetup...­

This year's Scalathon will be held at the Valley Forge Casino Resort 
(https://www.vfcasi...­). The Resort offers attendees an unparalleled 
level of accommodation, including 7 restaurants, 4 bars, a spa, casino, 
nightclub, and fitness center. We recommend waiting to book your hotel 
room until the discount rate has been arranged. The Resort is across 
from the serene Valley Forge National Historical Park, and few minutes 
from King of Prussia Mall, the largest shopping mall in the United 
States. We hope this venue will complement Scalathon's focus on 
developing social contacts within the open source community.

Scalathon 2011 sold out long in advance, as did NE Scala 2011/2012.  
Please take our advice and register early!

Details are still developing, but you can count on all days including 
food (probably breakfast/lunch).  Feel free to contact Yuvi Masory 
([address removed]) or Brian Clapper ([address removed]) with any 
questions. Also keep an eye on #scalathon on Twitter.
