Scala Up North 2020

October 2nd and 3rd - Ottawa, ON, Canada

Scala Up North is the first and only Scala conference organized in Canada. Two days of awesome technical presentations about Scala and its vibrant ecosystem. Come connect with other Scala developers and the companies building their mission-critical applications in Scala. It is like maple syrup for your cake.

Take a look at our videos from 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018 for a sample of the event.


From the very inception of the conference, we have had two fundamental goals:

  1. Inspire newcomers to the ecosystem
  2. Encourage Canadian and international technologists to showcase their work

While working for the above, we've also set some guiding principles:

  1. Let the community shape the conference
  2. Strengthen diverse voices in the ecosystem

These goals and principles guide every decision we make. Here are some examples:
