Building a Better Scala Community

Session Recording

About this Session

The Scala community has grown and adapted a lot in the last 10 years. We have made progress with better education, tooling, and communication but we still have a lot of work to do.

Whether you're new to the Scala community or a contributor to the compiler, this talk will look at tangible ways we can get involved and thrive in the next 10 years. We'll discuss how to build trust through education in both online and offline communities. Let's celebrate our wins and examine our losses so that we can make everything from Stack Overflow to Scala Days a welcoming, useful, and positive experience for all.
