Dear Scala Days friends,
As many of you know, the situation we’re currently facing on a global scale, the spread of the Coronavirus / COVID-19, has had a large impact on the tech community, including travel bans, large scale events being canceled, and people being urged to work remotely to contain the spread of the virus.
The health and safety of the community are of utmost importance to us and we spent considerable time carefully monitoring the situation and evaluating every scenario we might encounter.
As of this day, we have made the difficult, but necessary, decision to postpone Scala Days Seattle until May of 2021 following CDC, WHO, and the Public Health Department of King County (Seattle) recommendations.
Attendees who purchased tickets already will be offered the ability to transfer their tickets to the postponed date or receive a full refund.
We understand this is a difficult situation for everyone and appreciate everyone’s understanding at this time and hope to see you all in 2021!
Scala Days Berlin is still scheduled for this July and the situation is being monitored closely and any changes will be communicated.
Please reach out with any questions to [email protected].
Scala Days, the premier Scala conference, will be held at the Bell Harbor International Conference Center in Seattle, WA on May in May of 2021 (Firm dates to follow). There will also be a Scala Days Europe event at the bcc on July 1st-4th, 2020.
Scala Days brings together developers and technology professionals from all corners of the world to share their experiences and new ideas around creating applications with Scala and related technologies, like Spark, Kafka, and Akka. Scala Days provides a unique opportunity for Scala users to interact with the contributors to the language and related technologies and connect with fellow developers.
The conference in Seattle will start on Monday, May 18th, with an opening keynote by Martin Odersky and an evening welcome reception. More keynotes and conference talks will be given on Tuesday and Wednesday, May 19th and 20th. Pre-conference training workshops will take place on Sunday and Monday, May 17th and 18th.
