Developers in countries all over the world are using Scala for a large variety of applications across a broad range of industries. Popular ways to connect with the Scala community are via mailing lists or IRC channels, listed below.
Scala has the following primary mailing lists. For those lists that existed before they were migrated to Google Groups, see the links for complete archives on Gmane.
Scala-User: the main forum for questions and discussions about the Scala programming (Archive at Gmane). In particular, newbie questions and programming experiences and questions should go to this list.
- questions and suggestions around the future of Scala.
- trails of discussions that started in scala but become too specialized to be of interest to most readers.
- topics where you suspect that only a few people would be interested.
Scala-Internals: discussions about the core internal design and implementation of the Scala system. This list is mainly used by developers who commit code to the Scala code base, but it is open to the general public in the interest of transparency. Please only post new threads if you commit to the Scala code base, and you need to discuss the internals of the Scala system. Bug reports, feature requests, and general discussions should go to the other lists instead (Archive at Gmane).
Scala-SIPs: interest group devoted to the Scala Improvement Process (SIP) proposals.
