This year I’ve attended yet one more time one of the biggest Scala conference in central Europe – I am talking of course about Scalar.
My “Scalar adventure” started a day before the conference, during the official speakers dinner. Given the fact that I was taking part in Apache Spark workshop day before in Tricity, I’ve landed in Warsaw pretty late. Before I’ve actually sat down at the part, I’ve managed to: get lost in the city, find my way back to the club, meet Rafal from Virtus Lab, get lost one more time on a contrived & complex elevator system, before finally settling safely at the table.
During speaker’s dinner I’ve managed to have a (hopefully not too) long discussion with Mathias Doenitz. I don’t know how starting from Spary vs Akka-Http, through Rective Stream principles, we’ve ended up discussing different modern political system. The discussion was intense and engaging, but (when I think about it now) I get this notion that maybe Mathias had enough of me at the very end 🙂
When speakers party ended, it was time for me to move to the before party organised by Iterators. It was the same motor-cycle club/pub we’ve enjoyed last year. It was really awesome to see some old faces. I could not stay long that night, but a chance to meet that many friends in one place, was heart-warming before the next big day.
