“Mild” - an introductory track, aimed at providing concrete and relevant information to existing development teams, CIO/CTOs and everyone who isn't necessarily using Scala but wants to learn more. This includes an overview of the language itself, fundamentals of the ecosystem (Akka/actors, functional programming etc.), case studies and success stories.
“Extra Spicy” - an advanced track for experienced Scala or polyglot developers interested in deeper knowledge on what Scala has to offer: tips and tricks, type system hacks, advanced asynchronous programming idioms and similar topics.
Scala with a kick!
Scalapeño is an annual full-day conference for software developers, managers and CIO/CTOs focused on the Scala programming language, taking place on 22 September 2014. It is organized by the Israeli Scala user group Underscore with three objectives:
Provide a stage for lectures and learning opportunities on the Scala ecosystem for beginners and practicing developers alike
Spread the word about Scala and its merits in the Israeli
Provide an opportunity for Scala developers, aficionados and interested parties to network and create a local, organic ecosystem around the language
Two parallel tracks:
Scalapeño 2014 will take place at the Wohl Convention Center

Via road 4 in either direction, get off at the Bar-Ilan Interchange. Keep to the right (direction Kiryat Ono/Givat Shmuel) and take the first left to Max ve-Anna Webb St.
The convention center is located right at the first roundabout, and there are paid parking lots on either side of the street.

Scala is a general-purpose language for the Java Virtual Machine, fully interoperable with existing Java code, libraries and tools and offers significant improvements in productivity, expressiveness and conciseness compared to the Java language. Much has been written about the language; instead of reiterating them here, you may want to view the resources on the official Scala website.
