Scala Days 2017 Community Roundup

Posted by Peter Evison on Tue, Jun 13, 2017

 

Last week ten members of the Cake Solutions team headed to Copenhagen for the European leg of Scala Days 2017. We love this event, mixing with 1,000 other members of the Scala community, sharing ideas, listening to great talks and catching up with old friends. As long time sponsors of the event we are as well known for the great coffee we bring as we are of our technical excellence. We handed out micro books, took a VR headset with us which allowed attendees and potential future employees to take a virtual look around our office and gave away the incredibly popular spinners!

The Highlights


Martin Odersky's exciting keynote speech on Dotty set the tone for the rest of the conference and the message was clear.

"The roadmap cannot evolve without the efforts of the open source contributions."

Inspired by the message and ready to share his own experiences, Cake's Tamer Abdulradi gave an empowered 'lightning' talk for beginners, offering advice on how they too could start to contribute to the open source community. 

Cake's CTO Jan Machacek delivered his talk on 'Long Lived Microservices' in his normal high energy and engaging style. Jan focuses on the systems that 'survive' rapid evolution of their components. You can read more & download the slides here.

As always we took our film crew with us with a brief to capture the heartbeat of the conference - enjoy!
