Hi. This group was established in 2009. Anyone interested in the Scala programming language is welcome.

We meet at various locations in the Kendall Square neighborhood of Cambridge. Lately most meetings have been at MIT's Stata Center.

Meetings usually start at 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 usually go out for drinks and further conversation afterwards.

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.
