Call for Talk Proposals: Northeast Scala Symposium 2016

bmc

NE Scala, the original Scala community-based conference, is now gearing up for its 6th year. We're returning to Philadelphia this year, to The Hub.

The symposium is a cooperative project of the Scala meetup groups in Philadelphia, New York, and Boston.


This year's format will be similar to the last few years:

  • Friday, March 4, 2016: Day 1 talks (~200 tickets at $60 each)
  • Saturday, March 5, 2016: Day 2 unconference (free)

This is not a normal conference. It's cheaper, more informal, and (we hope you'll find) more fun — like a scaled-up meetup. Day 1 talks aren't selected by a committee, but (as usual) will be voted on by you, the attendees. And day 2 is a collaboratively organized "unconference" of talks, workshops, discussions, and spontaneous sessions. We'll assemble the schedule together that morning. (Believe it or not, this works.)


We're now accepting talk proposals via pull request on GitHub. Proposals are due January 15th.


Day 1 tickets will go on sale on Saturday, January 16th at noon EST. Please be aware that tickets for past years have sold out in hours or even minutes.

nescala.org hasn't been updated with fresh info yet, but it will be soon.


See you in there! Love, The Organizers.


P.S. Typelevel.org is co-locating with NE Scala for the first Typelevel Summit, March 2 and 3, also at The Hub in Philadelphia. See their website.
