Topics covered at #scalaxhackday

Saturday, 12th December at CodeNode, London

Starts at 10:00 AM.

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.

In August 2015, Skills Matter opened the doors to CodeNode, our new 23,000 sqft Tech Events and Community venue. CodeNode provides fantastic meetup, conference, training and collaboration spaces with unrivalled technology capabilities for our tech, digital and developer communities - a long held dream coming true !

With fantastic transport links and located in the heart of London's Tech City, we could not think of a better location for our 60,000 strong engineering community!

With seven event rooms, including a 300 seater lecture room, thousands more community members will be able to visit CodeNode to learn and share skills, code and collaborate on projects.

CodeNode features a 5,000 sqft break-out space, complete with fully-licensed bar, plenty of power sockets, meeting and collaboration spaces and entertainment areas.

CodeNode will also see the opening of a permanent Hack Space, stacked with microprocessors and the latest tools and devices to play with. A community film studio will be opening too, which you can use to record any tutorials or demo's you may want to share with our community.
