LinkedIn Tech Talk: Going from SCALA to scale

May 28, 2009

LinkedIn has been sponsoring internal tech talks with high-tech luminaries for a while now. We’ve discussed opening it up to external software engineers and we’re pleased to kick this off with a panel discussion that I'll be moderating next week, June 5, in Mountain View. Food will be served. So, just bring yourselves and friends interested in learning and networking.

We will not only have the creator of SCALA, Martin Odersky, here in person but we also have representatives of the most scaled SCALA implementation, which would include Nick Kallen of Twitter and David Pollak of the LIFT web framework.

Given below are further details of the panel and how you can sign up for it.
