Cake was honoured to be once again a key partner in the Scala eXchange 2016. This is our fifth year of being heavily involved in the event, which is the largest Scala event in the UK. Two members of the Cake team had talks at the event, 15 members of the team attended the event, and we were a major sponsor.
I hope you enjoy the short video summary from a community member's perspective.
Scala Days 2016 in Europe is over for another year, but what an incredible three days! One thousand people attended the conference in Berlin, which, as last time was a perfect host. As always Cake had a strong presence, in terms of talks (see below) and the Cake stand, supported by 12 members of the Cake team. Oh and we must not forget the great coffee our friends from Noble Espresso provided the attendees!
If you missed Scala Days then do not fear, we will be appearing at a number of other conferences in the UK, Europe and North America. We will be attending Scala World for example, which was a great success last year; the feedback I received from our engineering team was fantastic! We encourage you all to attend this year in September, details can be found here.
We are the main sponsor for the Reactive Summit in Austin (TX) which promises to bring together the world of reactive programming.
We will also be sponsoring the Scala eXchange in London in December which promises to be Europe's largest Scala Conference!
Well as we wave goodbye to Scala Days NYC and prepare for Scala Days Berlin its time for us to share our thoughts and look back at the event. What better way to do that than a short video documentary! I hope you enjoy…
The Cake Solutions team began introducing Scala to its clients back in 2010. Our first #ThisWeekinScala post was in September 2011 and since then we have never looked back! Our business has grown as a direct result of adopting Scala and Akka early, and partnering with Typesafe.
