Northeast Scala Symposium

The Boston, Philadelphia, and New York Scala user groups have combined to organize this first ever Northeast Scala Symposium.

We've got lots of great speakers within our groups. At the Symposium we'll get to share them among the groups and meet Scala enthusiasts (and employers) across the region. If you're coming from out of town, see where others are staying and log your own lodging.

Registration opens at 9AM and the formal program will begin at 10AM sharp. Apart from the keynote talks by Daniel Spiewak and Jonas Bonér, the program consists of ten 30-minute talks selected by attendees and now listed at nescala.org. The minute-by minute agenda is on Google Calendar.

Your registration fee of $50 covers the headline speaker's travel offset, and food and beverages for the event.

After the symposium concludes you're invited to the very nearby Puck Fair for a beer-and-wine open bar from 7 to 9 provided by the Scala-loving folks at Foursquare.

Register by January 16 to receive a Northeast Scala Symposium T-shirt at the event.

    Amazingly sharp attendee group. One often sees mini-tech-conferences with quite a few window shoppers, but this group was full of folks with genuine skills and experience.

    Casual and comfortable atmosphere, top notch speakers and talks. Possibly the best event for developers I have ever attended in the last 15 years.

    Kudoz to the organisers and Mettup and to the attendees. It was a great meetup. Learned how not to do things and DS's talk was great. I could use the insights in my work on clusters and multi-cores.

    What a great day! Thanks everybody for making it so.

    PDF of my slides is here: http://bit.ly/fZKfTc, but because of the extensive use of transitions and animation, I would recommend working with the compressed Keynote: http://bit.ly/ge1VhF

    I'm new to Scala and functional programming so some of the talks went over my head but I found most we're interesting and at a level I could understand

    February 19, 2011

  • Chris L.

    Back to back session awesomeness; an 80s action movie of an event!

    The event was well planned and organized, yet didn't sacrifice the input of participants. Being able to vote on the talks was really great, and the content of each was really high in quality. The environment made it easy and natural to mingle, which is something every conference should boast.

    This fantastic symposium left my head buzzing. (That's a good thing.) Thanks to everyone who attended; to the speakers (who were outstanding, to a man); to Nermin, for all his efforts (and the very cool T-shirt); and to Nathan, Doug and Meetup.com for hosting the event in their way-excellent NYC facilities.

    Thanks guys

  • Chris L.

    I'm a block over from the pod - taking the 6 in tomorrow around 8/830. I'll be wearing a 3ft cone-like scala hat, if you want to hook up...

    Subway lines either 4 or 6 will take you practically to Meetup's doorstep.

    February 17, 2011

  • Maxime L.

    What's the best plan to get at the Meetup HQ from the POD Hotel ? I'm thinking that driving is probably a bad idea, how are others PODsters getting there ?

    February 17, 2011

  • Brian C.

    Okay, Dad.

    February 17, 2011

  • Nathan H.

    Coffee and pastries will be available at 9AM and until we run out. Don't stay out too late tonight or Daniel's talk will just plain kill you.

    @Alex @Erik @Jamie Count me in. I'm staying at the POD hotel too. I'll be tooling around the NYC google office earlier, but 7pm should be good.

    @Erik - I like that plan and will probably be hanging out in the lounge area after getting settled in. I have no ideas for places to go through... Any locals have any favorites?

    February 16, 2011

  • Erik E.

    @Alex - I think a lot of people are staying at the Pod hotel. It would probably be a good idea to get people to gather in the lounge or something maybe 7-ish and we can build up a group.

    February 16, 2011

    @Erik, @Jamie I would be interested in participating/helping with a get together/dinner.

    I'll also be getting to NYC around 4:30 and staying at the Pod hotel.

    February 16, 2011

  • Erik E.

    @Jamie I don't know if anyone is planning anything but I think we should get a group together and get dinner and/or drinks.

    I'm arriving in NYC ~4:30 and staying at the Pod hotel. What are other people's schedule?
