Hi, folks who love Scala,

We are happy to announce that ScalaMatsuri 2024 will be held in next spring. Now CFP is open, so please submit your talks.

Current Summary of ScalaMatsuri 2024

ScalaMatsuri is the largest tech conference in Asia, which focuses on Scala. In the past events, speakers and attendances came from all over the world, not only from Japan.

In this event, everyone shared recent information and pieces of knowledge about Scala and communicated with each other. There were 26 sponsors and almost 400 attendances joined in the offline and online spaces.

The following are summaries of ScalaMatsuri 2024.

  • Date: June 7 - June 9, 2024
  • Program & Location
  • Venue: Offline

In 2024, we plan to hold ScalaMatsuri from June 7 to June 9. In the first day, we have Scala Training Day. Then we have Main Conference Sessions and Open Mic Sessions in the remaining days.

Main Sessions are held in Tokyo International Exchange Center. Scala Training Day Location is not decided yet.

Now we open your talk submission forms for ScalaMatsuri 2024. In this event, there are 2 kinds of talk slots. One is the main talk slot and another is a small talk slot for beginners.
