Call for papers

Open until Jan 31st 2017. We’ll accept speakers on a rolling basis.

We are looking for anything that you think might be interesting for a wider audience and that is Scala related. Maybe you are using Scala in a novel way? Or you wrote an interesting open-source library? Have an experience report from a project you are working on? Or maybe you just want to show what can be done with the Scala language and existing Scala tools.

Our main goal is to start some interesting discussions during the breaks and the after party, and inspire people to explore Scala and the Scala ecosystem later at home. Hence we are aiming at 30-minute presentations.

We are also looking for longer workshop-style submissions. Advanced workshops will run in parallel to beginner sessions and vice versa, and should take about 90 minutes.

Daniela Sfregola

@DanielaSfregola

Jan Pustelnik

@gosubpl

Technical Architect at GFT Poland and Lecturer at the University of Łódź by day, sporadic akka project contributor by night. Interested in how software works on low level, he does not find big frameworks appealing. This is the main reason why he loves Scala, a very expressive language that allows one to build right abstractions quickly without losing control over details. Jan is an active member of JUG Łódź and occasional conference speaker. Currently he is busy with a Big Data project for one of major investment banks. In his spare time he loves to dust-off some old issue of computer science journal only to find out that everything has already been invented before he even was born.
