Heiko Seeberger, Paulo Siqueira, Raul Raja Martinez and Greg Dorrell. will be speaking. Starts at 10:00 AM.

We're excited to announce the return of the Scala eXchange Community Day - ScalaX2gether, to be held on Saturday 16th December at Skills Matter's home, CodeNode. The #ScalaX2gether is organized by Skills Matter with the aim of hosting a community day with a few unconference sessions.

About the Event

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

ScalaX2gether 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 - #ScalaX2gether 2017 Wraps!

Highlights and Expected Projects

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

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

  • Greg Dorrell - Fullstack Scala with Play and Scala.js

  • Raul Raja Martinez - Building Purely Functional Microservices

  • Paulo Siqueira - Learning Scala with Minecraft Mods

  • Heiko Seeberger - Whirlwind Tour of Akka Typed

  • More TBC soon!

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.

Learning Scala with Minecraft Mods

Minecraft is a very popular game and Scala is a very popular language. Why not put them together?

In this workshop you will use Scala to create Minecraft mods, in a very lightweight and fun way - step by step.

You will go from simple tweaks to the game, like changing creature explosion radius, to more complex and interesting things like creating and adding new blocks and monsters to the game. The goal is to learn and practice programming concepts in Scala while having fun!

Paulo Siqueira

Paulo "JCranky" Siqueira is a Java and Scala developer. He currently works as an independent consultant mainly on Scala projects and is an Scala and Java instructor at Globalcode. He is also the co-founder of the Scaladores - an Scala meetup group in São Paulo, Brazil.

Whirlwind Tour of Akka Typed

One of the most wanted features for Akka has been type safety for actor messaging.

With Akka Typed – which is still experimental – we finally can benefit from the help of the Scala (or Java) compiler.

In this workshop Heiko will show the current state of Akka Typed using live demos and coding, covering core as well as cluster and persistence features. You should have solid knowledge of Scala and at least a basic understanding of Akka.

Heiko Seeberger

Heiko Seeberger is Fellow at codecentric, an internationally renowned expert on Scala and Akka and loves Rust almost as much as rock climbing. He has more than 20 years of experience in software engineering, consulting and training.

Workshop: Building Purely Functional Microservices

In this workshop you will learn alongside Raul how to build from scratch a purely functional application and expose it as a microservice with Freestyle and Freestyle RPC.

This will be a hands on coding session where we will architect a small application based on Algebras and Modules that can be exposed as an RPC microservice supporting Protobuf and Avro serialization protocols.

Workshop: Fullstack Scala with Play and Scala.js With Greg Dorrell

Scala is production ready and well on the way to version 1.0. In this workshop, you will see how to build a rich interactive website with Play and Scala.js.

Greg will start with some background about Play and then Scala.js, then will look at how and why you can use them together. Greg will walk you through how to build a fullstack Scala project from scratch, so you can go away start using it yourself. Expect hands-on experience with Scala.js specific libraries, and wrappers around JavaScript libraries - specifically the Google Maps API.

CodeNode

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.
