Scala Days 2019

Scala Days had a tenth anniversary in 2019. It is an annual conference about Scala, which I like to visit, when possible. There is some confusion as to what is meant: Where this the 9th, 10th or 11th Scala Days? Where the first Scala Days 9, 10 or 11 years ago? The truth is, that […]

Scala Days 2018

In 2018 I visited Scala Days in Berlin with this schedule. Other than in previous years I missed the opening keynote, which is traditionally on the evening before the main conference starts, because this is not so well compatible with my choice of traveling with a night train, especially because I did not want to […]

Scala Exchange 2017

I have visited Scala Exchange („#ScalaX“) in London on 2017-12-14 and 2017-12-15. It was great, better than 2015 in my opinion. In 2016 I missed Scala Exchange in favor of Clojure Exchange.

Scala Days 2015

I have visited Scala Days 2015 in Amsterdam. As usual, I took the night train to get there and back.

The event location was a cinama, like the Devoxx in Antwerp, but this time one that has been transformed to […]
