Code of Conduct

We are adopting the same Code of Conduct of other community-oriented conferences like NE Scala and PNW Scala:

Nobody likes a jerk, so show respect for those around you.

Scala Up North is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion (or lack thereof). We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form.

All communication should be appropriate for a technical audience including people of many different backgrounds. Sexual language, innuendo, and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks.

Participants violating these rules may be asked to leave without a refund at the sole discretion of the organizers.






Scala Up North provides a unique opportunity for sponsors to reach a technical audience seeking opportunities for innovation and professional development.

If your organization is looking to build a strong Scala team, this conference is a great opportunity to connect with potential hires.

Focusing on a young community, ticket prices will be kept low, so sponsor support is fundamental for our success.

Finally, encouraging collaboration will ultimately strengthen the community and increase the adoption of the Scala ecosystem in Canada.
