• "All About a Fold" Edition Scala DrinkUp!

    Fibbar MaGees

    The venerable Gabriel Claramunt will be arriving in Silicon Valley to present at Scala Bay (RSVP here: All About a Fold (https://goo.gl/Hvmb7b)). So, why not have a Scala DrinkUp in honor of the occasion? The format is pretty much the same: great drinks, food, and of course plenty of Scala discussion, war-stories, rants, etc. Fibbar MaGees is just a short drive from the Scala Bay MeetUp, so given the 8:30 start-time: the plan is for us to collectively migrate from Gabriel Claramunt's talk to the DrinkUp that immediately follows. At this time, traffic and parking shouldn't be too difficult. Carpooling and mass-transit options are available (the DrinkUp location is next to the Sunnyvale CalTrain station). See all of you there!

  • Scala DrinkUp - Co-Scheduled with Scala Bay!

    Stein's Beer Garden

    Like last time: we have another special edition of the South Bay Scala DrinkUp that will take place towards the end of the Scala Bay meetup. This time Adam Warski will be in town, and he is presenting at the meetup (https://www.meetup.com/Scala-Bay/events/232762394/). The drink-up will start at about 8:45 PM (basically a soft-starting time to allow folks to make the short drive from the meetup to Stein's Beer Garden in the neighboring City of Mountain View). As usual, this DrinkUp will be about gathering to talk about Scala and functional programming over good food and drinks. Given this DrinkUp will start a bit later, parking is likely to be less problematic. Carpooling may be coordinated from the meetup but even if you aren't able to attend the meetup, feel free to join us at the DrinkUp (and visa versa).

    Original Gravity Public House

    With summer drawing to a close, and the fall-season rapidly approaching: It's time for another Scala DrinkUp! Long-time attendees know the drill. But for new-comers: the South Bay Scala DrinkUp is a fun and casual event where folks apart of or interested in joining the growing community of Scala and functional programming enthusiasts, meet for dinner/drinks. Topics of discussion have been known to range from Scala war-stories to philosophical discourse (that can get rather interesting as we approach "The Ballmer Peak"). Arrive early, to allow time for parking, or better yet: bike or take mass-transit. The light-rail runs directly in-front of and the next street over from The Original Gravity Public House.
