2013 NEScala Symposium Videos
The 2013 Northeast Scala Symposium took place in Philadelphia on February 8th-9th, and while many of us were not able to make it, Marakana was able to produce videos of all the presentations. Consider us your definitive resource on Scala content! Thanks to the NEScala organizers for putting together another excellent event, and to Heroku for sponsoring.
Stay tuned as we release talks daily over the next few weeks. By the way, if you missed the 2012 Symposium, click here for those presentations.
