Scala Days Europe will be held this year at KOSMOS Cinema in Berlin on May 14-17. Scala Days North America will take place at the Sheraton New York Times Square on June 19-21, 2018.

Scala Days Europe 2018 is a fantastic and unique occasion to meet with Scala-using professionals and companies to exchange ideas and form business relations, as well as to discover the latest practical and theoretical developments concerning the Scala language. Scala Days Europe will bring together developers from all around the world to share their experiences. They talk about new ideas and creating applications with Scala, Akka, Play, Typelevel projects, and other community libraries and tools. Scala Days provides a unique opportunity for Scala users to interact with the key contributors to the language, Scala community leaders, and everyone using Scala.


Please find the conference schedule here.

There are also some community events around the conference. Two events took place on Tuesday: Scala Spree, organized by Scala Center, and theUnconference@Scala Days. On Friday there will be the Contributors Summit, organized by Scala Center, and the Typelevel Summit. Both Friday events are already booked out.
