Dear Scala Enthusiasts,

ScalaUA, the biggest Scala conference in Ukraine, warmly invites you to join our Speaker Team! As participants may remember, ScalaUA was a great success in 2016 and 2017. Our annual event lasts 2 days in 2 streams, having over 25 sessions and featured 25 speakers from different countries, who presented to about 250 conference attendees. The event is community driven. We are having three groups of talks:

  • advanced, focused on discuss of new ideas and highly experimental techniques
  • industrial, focused on the adoption of frameworks, tools, and techniques to production, experience reports, etc.
  • educational, with a clear introduction to the theme, which can be interesting for relative novices in Scala world Format implies free ideas exchange and discussions after the talks

Topics of interest

Submissions can include a broad range of topics, interesting for Scala developers, from compilers and pure functional modeling to experience reports or industrial applications in big data processing or machine learning fields. We expect talks focused mainly on technical content. With about 2,000 Scala Developers in Ukraine, we are truly excited to invite you to contribute your talk to ScalaUA 2018.
