1 DAY CONFERENCE

ScalaXHack 2016

Topics covered at #scalaxhack

Saturday, 10th December in London

spoke.

Overview

About the Event

The Hack Day will follow 2 power packed days at Scala eXchange!

ScalaXHack 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 will be something for everyone. You don't even have to have attended Scala Exchange to participate.

You Control the Content

The event will be a single day in an unconference/hack day format. The full set of sessions and topics will be decided on the day, so bring your ideas and enthusiasm with you! Example sessions include:

  • Hacking on new and established open source projects

  • Docsprees and non-technical sessions

  • Workshops and explorations of FP ideas, concepts, and libraries

  • Round-table discussions on technical and non-technical topics

How It Works

We'll start with a series of introductions and invite all attendees to do 1 to 5 minute pitches for sessions they would like to attend or host. We'll collaboratively work out a timetable and then split off to attend the sessions that interest us. Here's a rough timetable:

  • 9am - Doors open , Registration & Welcome Refreshments

  • 10am - Introductions and session pitches

  • 11am - Schedule published, sessions start

  • 12.30pm - Lunch

  • 13.30pm - Sessions resume

  • 17.00pm - #ScalaXHack 2016 Wraps!

Highlights & Expected Projects

We have started a Github repo to collect ideas for projects, talks, workshops, and round-table discussions.

There's also a Gitter channel to discuss the day and get in touch with new collaborators.

Please get in touch on Gitter to discuss ideas, and send us a PR if you'd like to propose a session or hack project.

We've also had some specific session proposals. These will be available as options when we collaboratively decide on the programme:

  • Miles Sabin - Typelevel Scala hacking session

  • Noel Welsh - beginner's Cats workshop

  • Renato Cavalcanti - beginner's FunCQRS workshop

  • Dave Gurnell - beginner's shapeless workshop

  • Richard Dallaway - beginner's Slick workshop

  • Eugene Burmako - scala.meta and macro paradise hacking session

How Much does a ticket Cost?

This is a free community event. There will be no charge for entry.

We expect demand for places to be high. Please do not sign up unless you are certain you will be able to attend.
