SF Scala Unmeetup: Build Tools and Dev Tooling

Tuesday, April 24, 2018 - 18:00

San Francisco

This month, we'll have an SF Scala Unmeetup with a theme: Build Tools!

We've seen much innovation around Scala build tools and dev tooling in the last few months. With sbt's 1.x releases, Scala Center's Bloop, the rise of new build tools like CBT and Mill, a new Language Server Protocol initiative, Ensime 2.0, maturing Scala Native support, etc, there is plenty of exciting tooling to test and adopt -- almost too much for one person or team. Let's get together and share insights and workflows while experimenting with new tooling.

About the Unmeetup series:

An Unmeetup is a casual, community-driven, hands-on meetup modeled after an "Unconference" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unconference). Attendees propose topics to discuss and projects to work on, then each individual chooses how to spend their time for the evening. This is complementary to the standard meetup and emphasizes community-building and collaboration. Drop by if you:
- would like to offer a tutorial or lightning talk.
- want to find contributors for your open source project.
- have ideas and work-in-progress to share.
- are new to Scala and seeking advice.
- have a tricky bug to solve.
- just want to hack on a project!
