Scala+Scale By the Bay
1 10th St, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA
Scala+Scale By the Bay (SBTB) is in its 4th year. It is the main West Coast conference on all things Scala, Kafka, Spark, and other systems written in Scala -- such as Akka, Play, Finagle, Flink, etc. There three major themes, each represented by a track:
Thoughtful Software Engineering -- taking a step back to architect software systems and properly write them, using type systems, functional programming, composable abstractions, etc. Developer productivity, workflow, verification and everything else that adds meaning to a developer's life goes here.
Reactive Systems and Microservices -- Scala-centric stacks are at the frontiers of modern scalable microservices. Akka, Finagle, Lagom, Event Sourcing are thoroughly covered. At least a fourth of all talks deal with streaming data in some form, and we cover all major streaming frameworks here -- Kafka, Akka Streams, Spark Streaming, Flink, etc.
Data Pipelines and Machine Learning -- Scala-centric stacks are high-throughput, high-performance distributed systems (Spark), and are naturally used for data mining and "big" data. We thoroughly cover all aspects of data engineering flowing into data science, with Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing and AI applications built on top of the two other tracks, plus data mining systems.
