Scala Sunday

Scala Days is in New York June 10-12 — because the Scala community is so awesome here, we assume. So we're going to be extra-awesome and have a meetup on the Sunday afternoon before!

All you ny-scala regulars and tourists alike are invited to spend a few hours lightning-talking with each other, enjoying a suitable break for pizza, and having beers on the Meetup HQ rooftop after the talks are done.

    Wrote a new blog post about the Work Pulling Pattern following my talk. The slides and a github project with the implementation of my scenario are linked:

    Thanks for all your great feedback, and hope to see you all on ScalaDays!

    Not attending scaladaze, but I think a move from ruby to Scala is nigh. If like to powwow here if room can be allowed under some condition.

    Any one wishing to share a cab from Scaladays' surroundings to Meetup place?

    June 3, 2013

  • Nathan H.

    Hi attendees and wait-listers, we have room for more people but need some volunteers to help things run smoothly. This involves showing up early, staying until the end, and possibly missing a talk or two. If you want to help out, get in touch!

    May 31, 2013

    • Nathan H.

      Thanks, we've got enough volunteers now to let more people attend. If you did volunteer and haven't heard from me today, please get in touch again because I lost your contact info. (Organizing is hard.)

      June 2, 2013

    • Pedro F.

      Hey, let me know if you still need help.

  • Kaspar

    Guys could you make videos please.

    Is this meetup suitable for devs who are relatively new to scala and don't know the syntax 100% or even 70%?

    May 31, 2013

    • Doug T.

      Ny scala is for all scala enthusiasts. The community wouldn't grow without new minds and ideas. Welcome kareem

    "Lightning" talks? Does that mean every speaker sounds like an auctioneer? Why not talk for longer about just the key points, so people can better digest and think critically about the subject matter?

      Then why "lightning"? Here's what people think of when you mention lightning: http://www.toonpool.c...­

      Lighting talks do have an advantage of forcing people to get to the point and its something we haven't tried before. Under normal circumstances the energy isn't that high enough to do these on our normal calendar. The idea is to ride the scaladays conference high in order to get more people excited about getting involved in our community.
