Northeast Scala Symposium 2020

Join the NYC, Boston, and Philadelphia Scala meetups in Brooklyn, March 12-14, 2020, to celebrate 10 years of NE Scala!

Since 2011, the New York, Boston, and Philadelphia Scala meetups have hosted this community-driven Scala conference. Because the Northeast Scala Symposium (NE Scala, to its friends) is community-driven, you help create it. The NE Scala talks are proposed by the attendees, who then vote to select which will be given.


As usual, NE Scala will co-locate with Typelevel Summit for two days of recorded talks, followed by an "unconference" day:

Code of Conduct

The Northeast Scala Symposium is committed to providing an environment that encourages and empowers its members to teach, learn, and collaborate. We welcome every skill level – from beginners to experts – to participate and advance the Scala community.

Importantly, our members represent multiple dimensions of difference – across gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, and more – and we want everyone to feel comfortable bringing their full selves to the conference.

This means all members should apply a high degree of care and consideration to how they interact with others. We do not tolerate harassment in any form, but also want to go even further in actively creating an environment of belonging, inclusion, safety. Anyone acting contrary to the spirit of this mission will be asked to leave the conference at the discretion of the organizers.

During the conference, we have dedicated incident handlers and a Slack channel available for feedback. Please see the Reporting and Feedback section for details.

Feedback, Slack

The organizers have established a Slack team, . Because of the way Slack works, you have to be invited into the team, but anyone already on the team can invite anyone else. If you'd like an invitation, email or

There's a special #feedback channel on the team, where you can leave general conference feedback. You can also DM the organizers directly with feedback or concerns.

The Code of Conduct also applies to interactions on our Slack team.
