3 DAY CONFERENCE

Scala Days 2015 - Amsterdam

Topics covered at #

Monday, 8th - Wednesday, 10th June at Beurs van Berlage, Amsterdam

Martin Odersky, Jonas Bonér and Adam Gibson. will be speaking. Starts at 9:00 AM.

Scala Days Amsterdam will be held this year at the Beurs Van Berlage on June 8th through 10th, 2015.

The conference will bring together developers from all corners of the world to share their experiences and new ideas around creating applications with Scala and related technologies, like Akka and Play Framework. 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.

As part of the Skills Matter community, we can provide you with a special discount of 50€ when you register using the promotion code: skillsmatter

A few of the Scala Days 2015 Amsterdam speakers include:

  • Martin Odersky, Chief Architect & Co-Founder at Typesafe
  • Jonas Boner, Inventor of Akka, CTO at Typesafe and Co-Author of the Reactive Manifesto
  • Adam Gibson, Co-founder of Skymind and Creator of Deeplearning4


Last year’s conference in Berlin was a sold-out event at 800 attendees, and for 2015 we have added two annual events: San Francisco and Amsterdam. Leaders from Scala User Groups and communities around the globe, students and language contributors, will gather to discuss academic research, use-cases and visionary projects for a two day, action-packed event.

Martin Odersky

Martin Odersky is a professor at EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland. He is best known as the creator of the Scala programming language. Prior to that, he made several contributions to the development of Java. He created the Pizza and GJ languages, designed the original version of generics for Java, and wrote the javac reference compiler.

Tuesday Keynote: Life Beyond the Illusion of Present

The idea of the present is an illusion. Everything we see, hear and feel is just an echo from the past. But this illusion has influenced us and the way we view the world in so many ways; from Newton’s physics with a linearly progressing timeline accruing absolute knowledge along the way to the von Neumann machine with its total ordering of instructions updating mutable state with full control of the “present”. But unfortunately this is not how the world works.

But unfortunately this is not how the world works. There is no present, all we have is facts derived from the merging of multiple pasts. The truth is closer to Einstein’s physics where everything is relative to one’s perspective. As developers we need to wake up and break free from the perceived reality of living in a single globally consistent present. The advent of multicore and cloud computing architectures meant that most applications today are distributed systems—multiple cores separated by the memory bus or multiple nodes separated by the network—which puts a harsh end to this illusion. Facts travel at the speed of light (at best), which makes the distinction between past and perceived present even more apparent in a distributed system where latency is higher and where facts (messages) can get lost...

Jonas Bonér

Jonas Bonér is founder and CTO of Lightbend, inventor of the Akka project, co-author of the Reactive Manifesto and a Java Champion.

Wednesday Keynote: The Future of AI in Scala, and on the JVM

AI, and deep learning in particular, has made huge advances in both accuracy and speed in recent years, breaking record after record in classifying a range of datatypes, including images, sound, time series and text.

Deep learning is essentially machine perception, recognizing patterns in sensory data. With time, it will be implemented more and more on the edge, in low-memory devices in handsets, automobiles and other devices. Scala's speed and versatility put it in a position to dominate numerical computing and therefore AI. The Scala ecosystem, which includes some of the fastest distributed run-times, makes it easy to process the computationally intensive operations that AI requires quickly. So the future of AI on Scala is very fast (real-time streaming data processing). With the JVM, it is also ubiquitous, ranging from Linux servers, to Windows and OSX desktops, to Android phones.

Beurs van Berlage

Scala Days Amsterdam 2015 will be held at Beurs Van Berlage this year!

During the 17th-century Dutch Golden Age, Amsterdam became the first city in the world to establish its own permanent stock exchange. Here, shares were traded in the world's first public limited company: the Dutch East India Company.

Three hundred years later, architect Berlage was commissioned to build Amsterdam's third stock exchange building. A controversial structure at the time, today this building is regarded as ushering in the era of modern Dutch architecture. More info here.
