Since 2011, the New York, Boston, and Philadelphia Scala meetups have come together to host this community-driven Scala conference. The conference rotates annually between each city, and we rely on the community to select talks via a voting process. Yes, that’s right! The talks are proposed by you, selected by you, and given by you. The attendees make NE Scala!

We are seeking a wide variety of talks and speakers covering any topic of interest to the Scala community, and highly encourage first-time conference speakers. Talks can be three lengths: lightning (15 min), medium (30 min), or long (45 min).

The 10th annual Northeast Scala Symposium will be held in Brooklyn from March 12-14, 2020. We’ll be at the same great venue in DUMBO (26 Bridge; map) as the 2017 conference, and co-locating with the Typelevel Summit for the 5th consecutive year.

As usual, the conference will be comprised of three events on successive days:

  • March 12 - Typelevel Summit
  • March 13 - NE Scala
  • March 14 - Unconference

This CFP is specifically for NE Scala (March 13) and closes on Tuesday, February 11th, at Midnight EST. The Typelevel Summit CFP is still open (until February 4th). The Unconference is organized on-site, the morning of the events.

Once the CFP closes, we’ll open up voting until Wednesday, February 19th, then announce the schedule shortly thereafter. If you’d like advance feedback on your talk, members of the conference committee are available to help you rehearse.

CFP Description
