NEW YORK, N.Y., March 13 — Typesafe, the company empowering developers to build high performance web applications, today announced open registration and a call for papers for Scala Days NYC. Scheduled to take place June 10-12 at the historic Hudson Theater in New York City, the conference will feature a series of workshops and sessions to showcase Scala and Scala-based libraries and frameworks.
"Scala has a rapidly growing and vibrant developer community that is pushing the boundaries of application development on the JVM," said Martin Odersky, Chief Architect, Chairman of Typesafe and the creator of Scala. "With Scala Days, we're hoping to provide a unique opportunity for users to learn best practices from each other as well as key contributors to the language."
In addition to an opening keynote address by Odersky, other notable presentations include "Using Spring in Scala," by Arjen Poutsma, Staff Engineer, VMWare; and "Confessions of a Ruby Developer Whose Heart Was Stolen by Scala," by Ryan LeCompte. Other presenters include some of the leading experts and largest Scala users from companies such as Typesafe, Cake Solutions, the Broad Institute, Comcast Interactive and NICTA.
