  5. Networking - Pub Quiz (5-6 PM JST | 10-11 AM CEST | 4-5 AM EDT)

    Join an online Pub Quiz: Wheel of Scala Fortune. Team up with 4 other participants and answer questions about programming in Scala, Scala community and SoftwareMill 😀 The best team wins #PartyParrot and Scalar themed gadgets + 50% discount for the Akka Typed Fundamentals online training.

  6. Networking - Unconference (10-11 PM JST | 3-4 PM CEST | 9-10 AM EDT)

    We invite you to join an online Unconference which will be a great opportunity to meet other people and discuss any topics that spark your interest 🤩

    How does it work?

    • You suggest a topic by filling out this survey.
    • We group those topics so that you can form groups around similar topic areas.
    • During the event we discuss the topics you chose using Sessions (similar to zoom rooms) on hopin.

  7. The network is the most critical part

    • Use the best Internet connection you can - if possible use wire.
    • Avoid other activities that will steal bandwidth. Don’t start other bandwidth-intensive activities just before, or during, a Session. On your device — and as much as possible, on other computers and devices that share your Internet connection—avoid: large downloads and uploads, streaming video (e.g. Netflix, Hulu, YouTube), cloud backups (e.g. Carbonite, CrashPlan).
