This summer Bruce Eckel will be hosting the Scala Summit in Crested Butte on August 19 - 21. I’ve been to many of Bruce’s events and they are my favorites. The hallway conversations at regular conferences are always the best and most educational part, so why not have a conference that is just the interactive bits? The OpenSpaces style is only interactive. The agenda at an OpenSpaces conference is determined by the attendees. This leads to rich discussions and collaborative project hacking. I usually bring a project I want to work on with others and then find people who want to write some code with me. This year at the Scala Summit I’ll be working on some Scala template apps for Typesafe Activator. Hopefully you can join me!
