Scala By the Bay


(T)  If you are interested to learn and share your experience and expertise in functional programming, reactive microservices, and data pipelines for machine learning, you definitely want to attend next week Scala By the Bay at Twitter headquarters in San Francisco. The three major themes of this year conference are:

  • “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 go her…
  • 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.”
