Scalapeño 2013

Scalapeño: Scala with a kick!

Scalapeño is a full-day conference for software developers, managers and CIO/CTOs focused on the Scala programming language. It is organized by members of the Israeli Scala user group Underscore, and has three distinct objectives:

  • Spread the word about Scala and its merits in the Israeli software industry;

  • Provide a stage for lectures and learning opportunities on the Scala language, tools and libraries for beginners and practicing developers alike;

  • Provide an opportunity for Scala developers, aficionados and interested parties to network and create a local, organic ecosystem around the language.


The conference features two concurrent tracks:

  • “Mild” - an introductory track, aimed at providing concrete and relevant information to existing development teams, CIO/CTOs and everyone who isn't necessarily using Scala but wants to learn more. This includes an overview of the language itself, fundamentals of the ecosystem (Akka/actors, functional programming etc.), case studies and success stories.

  • “Extra spicy” - an advanced track for experienced Scala or polyglot developers interested in deeper knowledge on what Scala has to offer: tips and tricks, type system hacks, advanced asynchronous programming idioms and similar topics.


Scalapeño 2013 is organized by Tomer Gabel and Shai Yallin with support from WiX and our additional sponsors, Yahoo! and LivePerson.

Note: We're hosted at Google's Campus Tel-Aviv. Attendees should register to the campus via the website.

    Quick note: We've received all recorded material from the conference, and it'll be made available online in the next few days (likely by the end of the week). I'll post the links once they're all up.

    Hi everyone,

    Thanks for attending Scalapeño last week! We had a blast and believe the conference was a big success thanks to our speakers, sponsors and, of course, the people who came.

    To make next year's conference (yes, we're definitely planning on an annual event) even better, we'd really appreciate it if you could take 10 minutes of your time to answer our feedback survey (at http://tinyurl.com/scalapeno2013). The survey is entirely anonymous and will really help us know our audience better; additionally, the session-specific feedback will be forwarded to the respective speakers, which will help them become better at what they do. So please, don't be shy -- let us know what you think!

    Thanks and see you at the August 22nd meetup,
    Tomer and Shai

    Very enjoyable. There were some sessions which I think were too advanced for beginners but overall a good introduction

    • Shmulik F.

      Hi Omer,
      Great talk. However, you didn't mention Scala.NET. From what I can find, this seems to be an abandoned effort. See:
      * http://www.scala-lang...­
      * http://grokbase.com/t...­

      You might want to elaborate on it here, or in future talks.

      Thanks again,
      Shmulik

      July 21, 2013

    • Omer

      I did mention Scala.NET in an answer to a question that was asked, saying that the project was no longer maintained (as it is noted in the second link you attached) and therefore shouldn't be considered as an option.

  • Yaniv D.

    maybe it has been asked already, but will it be possible to mix attending lectures from both "mild" and "spicy" tracks? I feel like I am somewhere in the middle with various lectures that appeal to me from both tracks.

    Also, will the lectures we will not attend to be available afterwards (will they be recorded?)

    Scalapeño visitors, please be aware that Eugene Burmako's lecture has changed: instead of focusing on implementation details, it now focuses on use cases and usage patterns for Scala macros in 2.10 and 2.11.
