Announcing FinagleCon 2015

Yesterday we opened registration and the call for participation for FinagleCon, a new annual conference for the Finagle community. This year’s conference will be a Scala by the Bay event hosted at Twitter HQ in San Francisco, and will take place on Thursday, August 13, the day before Scala by the Bay begins.

The conference program will include keynotes by Twitter’s Marius Eriksen and SoundCloud’s Phil Calçado, talks by Finagle adopters and contributors, and workshops and tutorials on a range of Finagle-related topics (including Finatra and Finch).

We’d love to have your talk on the program, so if your organization is using Finagle, send us a proposal! You’ll need to create a Linux Foundation account if you don’t have one already (they’re helping us host the event), and you’ll want to select “FinagleCon 2015” as the event when filling out the Call for Participation form. The CFP will be open until June 30, and we’ll be announcing the full program on July 13. Please let us know if you have any questions about the proposal process.

All Scala by the Bay attendees will receive a discount code that will allow them to register for FinagleCon for free, and Scala by the Bay registration is available at the regular price through June 16. Once you’re registered for Scala by the Bay, please stay tuned for details about how to register for FinagleCon with the discount code.

It’s also possible to register for FinagleCon independently if you’re not attending Scala by the Bay (note that these tickets will not include access to other Scala by the Bay events).

We’re also inviting organizations that are using Finagle to join the program as sponsors. If you’re interested in sponsoring FinagleCon, please see our prospectus and get in touch over email.

This is our first time holding this event, so if you have questions please let us know—we’re on Twitter at @finaglecon, and you can also reach us by email. Help us make the first FinagleCon a success!
