Martin Odersky Keynotes 5th Annual Scala Days, Brings Scala to International Stage

Sold Out Conference in Berlin Attracts Developers and CTOs From Around the World to Promote Innovation and Advancement on the JVM

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/03/14 -- Typesafe, provider of the world's leading Reactive platform and the company behind Play Framework, Akka and Scala, today announced the final speaker line up and sponsor list for the 5th Annual Scala Days in Berlin, Germany on June 16th, 2014 . Scala Days, the premier Scala Conference, brings together developers from all corners of the world to share their experiences and new ideas around creating applications with Scala and related technologies, like Akka and Play Framework.

Martin Odersky, creator of Scala, will set the tone for the direction of the language moving forward, with an opening keynote on June 16th focused on the simple parts of Scala that make the language powerful and sophisticated for experts, yet approachable and appealing for newcomers.

"Scala has evolved a lot since its inception in 2004. Its user base has grown to a size I could have never imagined back then." said Martin Odersky. "This year, I want to focus on what I view as the core of Scala. While the parts are simple, the combinations can be as elaborate and complex as one wants to make. This allows for the type of scale and growability that is crucial to a language's success."

Growability and planning for success are key themes of this year's event, with guest keynotes by Erik Meijer of Microsoft fame, and Chad Folwer, internationally recognized software developer, CTO, writer and educator. Speakers are some of the most respected minds in computer science, ranging from students and researchers, to CTOs and architects at global companies.

In addition to the speaker lineup, sponsors across all industries have come together to promote Scala in the workplace. Sponsors include:

WebRTC is bringing significant change to the communications landscape that will bridge the worlds of web and telephony, making the Internet the new standard for communications. Cloud9 took the road less traveled and used WebRTC to create a downloadable enterprise-grade communications platform that is changing the communication dynamic in the financial sector. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Leo Papadopoulos, CTO of Cloud9, discussed the importance of WebRTC and how it enables companies to focus o...
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
