The London area has the fastest growing Scala commercial user community in the world. You can expect to see people from financial companies like HSBC, Morgan Stanley, UBS, GSA Capital as well as fast growing innovative companies like Zeebox and Mind Candy. And of course lots of people from the USA will be joining us too, companies like Autodesk, Heroku, Jayway, and so on.
Being at the London Barbican means there will be lots of space and a super environment for casual meet ups with all these people. More space for technical sessions. There is still time for you to submit another great talk and be included in the program too, deadline 22 Feb.
With the help of our Sponsors, Skills Matter, Typesafe, Heroku, Zeebox and Cloud Foundry we are able to offer participants a magical evening reception and dinner at the Lincoln Inn, one of Londons classic historical buildings .
