Scala Days Lands in Chicago and Copenhagen in 2017

We're excited to share the locations and dates of the two 2017 Scala Days conferences, as well as announce that CFP is open! Scala Days Chicago will be at the Swissotel on April 18th - 21st, and Scala Days Copenhagen will be at the Bella Center on May 30th - June 2nd. Those two conferences will bring together developers from all corners of the world to share their experiences and new ideas around creating applications with Scala and related technologies, like Akka, Play and Lagom.

A unique learning and networking opportunity

Scala Days provides a unique opportunity for Scala users to interact with the contributors to the language and related technologies and connect with fellow developers. Leaders from Scala User Groups and communities around the globe, students and language contributors, will gather to discuss academic research, use-cases and visionary projects for a two day, action-packed event. Last year’s conferences in New York and Berlin were sold-out events!

Want to get the most out of Scala Days Chicago? Register for an in-person training course before the Scala Days conference. All trainings are two-day trainings and will take place Tuesday and Wednesday April 18th -19th, 2017. The courses are designed for developers of all levels of proficiency with the Lightbend Reactive Platform. Register with the code lightbendfriend to get $50 off the early-bird ticket price!


The call for papers is open!

The Call for Papers is open and submissions for both Chicago and Copenhagen are accepted. The deadline to submit is January 15, 2017. Surprise the program comittee with creative ideas on any topics you think the community would find exciting, inspiring, thought provoking, and interesting! The sessions will run approximately 45 minutes in length. Speakers receive a free Scala Days conference pass.
