What we’re about

Howdy!  This group is intended for anyone in the greater Boston area who is interested in the Scala programming language -- beginners, experts, and everyone in-between.

We meet at various locations in the Boston metro area. Lately most meetings have been at the Broad Institute, but we've met in many places around Boston and Cambridge, and have begun to hold some meetings in the Boston suburbs, for those not in the city.

Meetings usually start around 6:30, include one or two talks or sessions, and conclude by 8:00; there is usually pizza and soda provided by a sponsor; and some of us often go out for drinks and further conversation afterwards.

We have an associated Boston Scala Slack group, which is open to all members of the community.  We are using that to talk about Meetup organizing, Scala employers and jobs around Boston, and other topics of community interest.  If you'd like to join, send a note to the Meetup organizer, and we'd be happy to invite you!

We'd love to hear from interested speakers and workshop leaders. Any length of talk is welcome, from 5 minutes to a whole meeting. The format is open; usually it's been talks with slides and/or live coding, but other formats like hands-on workshops and sessions are welcome too.

Meetings may be photographed and the photos posted to the group.
