Scala by the Bay

47 Degrees is proud to be sponsor of the 2016 Scala by the Bay.

Join us November 11th - 13th for three days of in-depth talks on Scala, functional programming, reactive microservices, and big data pipelines at the Twitter HQ in San Francisco, CA.

Keynote speakers includes Miles Sabin, Julie Pitt, and Jay Kreps.

There are three tracks of talks during the event:

  • Thoughtful Software Engineering – taking a step back to architect software systems and properly write them, using type systems, functional programming, composable abstractions, etc. Developer productivity, workflow, verification and everything else that adds meaning to a developer’s life goes here.

  • Reactive Systems and Microservices – Scala-centric stacks are at the frontiers of modern scalable microservices. Akka, Finagle, Lagom, Event Sourcing are thoroughly covered. At least a fourth of all talks deal with streaming data in some form, and we cover all major streaming frameworks here – Kafka, Akka Streams, Spark Streaming, Flink, etc.

  • Data Pipelines and Machine Learning – Scala-centric stacks are high-throughput, high-performance distributed systems (Spark), and are naturally used for data mining and “big” data. We thoroughly cover all aspects of data engineering flowing into data science, with Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing and AI applications built on top of the two other tracks, plus data mining systems.
