The Boston (http://groups.google.com/group/boston-scala), Philadelphia (http://groups.google.com/group/scala-phase), and New York (http://www.meetup.com/ny-scala) Scala user groups have combined to organize this first ever Northeast Scala Symposium (http://www.nescala.org/).
We've got lots of great speakers within our groups. At the Symposium we'll get to share them among the groups and meet Scala enthusiasts (and employers (http://www.meetup.com/ny-scala/pages/Symposium_Employers/)) across the region. If you're coming from out of town, see where others are staying and log your own lodging (http://www.meetup.com/ny-scala/pages/Hotels/).
Registration opens at 9AM and the formal program will begin at 10AM sharp. Apart from the keynote talks by Daniel Spiewak and Jonas Bonér, the program consists of ten 30-minute talks selected by attendees and now listed at nescala.org (http://www.nescala.org/). The minute-by minute agenda is on Google Calendar (https://www.google.com/calendar/embed?showNav=0&showDate=0&showTabs=0&showPrint=0&showTitle=0&showCalendars=0&showTz=0&mode=AGENDA&height=600&wkst=1&bgcolor=%23FFFFFF&src=vc29i24dvrkui2q3fvgncbmqc0%40group.calendar.google.com&color=%232952A3&ctz=America/New_York).
Your registration fee of $50 covers the headline speaker's travel offset, and food and beverages for the event.
After the symposium concludes you're invited to the very nearby Puck Fair (http://foursquare.com/venue/2273) for a beer-and-wine open bar from 7 to 9 provided by the Scala-loving folks at Foursquare.
Register by January 16 to receive a Northeast Scala Symposium T-shirt at the event.
