Subject Scala By the Bay Developer Conference and Training Registration
Date Thu, 05 Jun 2014 14:55:30 GMT
Scala by the Bay registration and training is now open!

We are assembling a great two-day program for Scala By the Bay

-- the yearly SF Scala developer conference.  This year the conference
itself is on August 8-9 in Fort Mason, near the Golden Gate bridge,
with the Scala training on August 6-7 and Apache Spark training August
11-12.  We have key companies using Scala as sponsors and partners,
and many great talk submissions already in the pipeline, including
Play and Akka.

We provide pre-conference training, Scala Foundations, and
post-conference training, Fast Track to Spark.  Each training is a two
day intensive, hands-on course.  The training and registration tickets
have early bird discounts of about $200 each, so e.g. on the all three
package the savings would be $600.  Early bird pricing ends on July
2nd.  Training capacity is limited to 25 seats in each training

The keynotes are by Marius Eriksen, Principal Engineer at Twitter, the
lead on Finagle and other Twitter Stack components, and Matei Zaharia,
CTO of Databricks, the lead on Apache Spark and other Berkeley Stack

There will be great lunch and dinner presentations and we plan to
bring the Off the Grid trucks for awesome food, as well as create
other opportunities afforded By the Bay to enjoy our spectacular
location and community.

We are still looking for more great talk submissions, both full-length
and lightning.  The CFP is open through Friday the 13th, and the
registration fee for the authors of accepted full-length talks will be
waived.  We will open up voting for registered attendees once we have
the majority on hand.  The program will be composed based on the votes
from the attendees, the reviewers, and the organizers.

We hope to see you at Fort Mason in August!

Alexy Khrabrov, Jason Swartz, and the Organizing Committee of Scala By the Bay
