Topics covered at #scalaxhackday

Saturday, 12th December in London



We're excited to announce the first ever Scala Exchange Hack Day, to be held on Saturday 12th December at CodeNode in partnership with Underscore and the London Scala User Group.

The Hack Day is a friendly place where you can get involved in Scala open source. Come along to meet new people, learn new things, and contribute to your favourite Scala projects.

It doesn't matter whether you've been coding Scala for three months or three years - there'll be something for everyone. You don't even have to have attended the conference to participate.

We'll have representatives from Scala OSS projects on hand to help you get involved. Confirmed projects include: Ammonite, Ensime, Freeslick, shapeless, and uPickle, with more to be announced.

We'll be adding new participants and projects in the coming weeks. Sign up at the event page to attend, and watch #scalaxhackday on Twitter for further announcements.

Program on the day

Door will open at 9am. We'll start hacking at 10am and continue until 5pm. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
