Folks -- the first ever Silicon Valley Scala Symposium, the native Bay Area Scala conference, begins this year. We'll do it on August 2nd with all-day talks by some of the best known Scala people from the area and beyond (as far as Colorado and Scandinavia, among other exotic locales full of natural beauty and smart people).
The list of speakers and talks is now at the event page:
Marius Ericksen will keynote on all the amazing Scala systems Twitter builds, Paul Phillips will get us inside the Scala compiler, Ivan Porto Carrero and James Ward will delve into Scalatra and Play, respectively, Tony Tam will explain how to build self-documenting RESTful APIs in Swagger, Matei Zaharia will show where Spark is going, Bill Venners will illuminate implicits in ScalaTest, James Douglas will have a hands-on category theory tour in the REPL, Vitaly Gordon and Chris Severs will do data mining and machine learning in the REPL as well, Adelbert Chang will discuss distributed graph processing in Scala and AKKA, Jamie Allen will talk about AKKA,
... and more amazing talks by Scala developers from the best Scala-based companies are being added within the next few days!
Register early and let your colleagues know. You will tell your children and grandchildren that you were at the first one. If Rod Johnson is right, in 2018 you will be the elder among the 100 Scala newbies in your company, and you will have been there when it all was just starting...
We expect lots of REPL, lots of Q&A, and hope you'll join in and have fun!
