What we're about
Upcoming events (3)
Have concepts you've been wanting to explore or discuss? Want to see what kind of projects members of the local Scala community are up to? If so, bring your ideas and inquiries to next unmeetup! Flow will be providing the venue with refreshments and a beautiful balcony view of Manhattan just across the Hudson river. This will be our first unmeetup in Hoboken, so we'll hopefully see a few new faces. An unmeetup is a casual, community-driven, hands-on meetup modeled after an "unconference" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unconference). Attendees propose topics to discuss and projects to work on, then each individual chooses how to spend their time for the evening. This is complementary to the standard meetup and emphasizes community-building and collaboration. Drop by if you: - would like to offer a tutorial or lightning talk. - want to collaborate on an open source project. - have ideas and work-in-progress to share. - are new to Scala and seeking advice. - have a tricky bug to solve. - just want to write code! It should be expected that not a great deal of preparation goes into the topic, and this hopefully encourages more people to suggest topics since there is no pressure to prepare for weeks on end. Also participants are free to go from topic to topic if they wish to do so. Agenda: 6:00 - Doors open for refreshments and socializing 6:45 - Welcome, announcements, unmeetup projects 9:00 - Take the party elsewhere!

Come have a drink, enjoy the view, and meet other developers at Cryptonomic HQ's rooftop in Brooklyn! This is a joint event with our host (https://www.meetup.com/Cryptonomic-NYC-Events/events/263201105), so we'll likely meet blockchain folks working in functional languages other than Scala. Cryptonomic is a Brooklyn-based startup committed to disintermediation and decentralization. They works extensively with Scala, Akka, and Cats to deliver always-on back-end services for its open source stack. Cryptonomic recently launched a minimal retro explorer called Mininax (https://medium.com/@CryptonomicTech/announcing-mininax-a-minimal-retro-block-explorer-for-tezos-544721a5ba09) for the Tezos blockchain as a quick and fun project to showcase the abilities of its Scala-based blockchain API, Conseil (https://github.com/Cryptonomic/Conseil).
This is a meetup for anyone learning or using Typelevel Cats and related libraries. Bring your laptop, questions, and projects, and we'll make sure someone is available to help you out. This session will feature Luka Jacobowitz, who is a Cats maintainer and well-known speaker in the Scala community. Special thanks to Luka's home company, CompStak, who is providing the venue as well as refreshments for attendees. If you're an experienced Cats user, this is also a great opportunity to contribute back to the community by sharing your knowledge and helping increase adoption. Alternatively, if you'd like to become a contributor, this is a great opportunity to pick the brain of a current maintainer. Everyone should feel welcome to come and go at their convenience. At some point we'll go around the group have a stand-up for people to share what they're working on. While this is not an official Typelevel Scala event, we ask that all attendees abide by the same Scala Code of Conduct https://typelevel.org/code-of-conduct.html and message our meetup organizers about any moderation issues.
