NEScala is our favorite sister Scala conference.  Here's a CFP!

Hey everyone,
The Northeast Scala Symposium call for speakers is open! If you're interested in giving a talk the only requirements are that it have something to do with Scala, and follow our code of conduct (basicaly, don't be a jerk). We are looking for talks of three lengths, lightning (15 min), medium (30 min), and long (45 min), and we love variety in both topics and experience levels, so please submit!
