5 reasons why you can't miss TypeVille 2022
With Scalar bringing a new brand - TypeVille, extending beyond Scala to 7 other strongly typed languages, and moving from Warsaw to Krynica-Zdrój, it’s time to reveal all the cards so that you know what to expect this year. Meeting other type safety enthusiasts, growing your skills, and enjoying the great outdoors are just the first few to begin with. You can already check the agenda & get yourself an attendee package here!
Meeting people from the community has always been one of the most valued aspects of the Scalar conference that started in 2014 and became one of the biggest Scala conferences in Central Europe. It’s been evolving throughout the years, each of the 7 editions bringing amazing speakers, new great developers in the community, and some changes of the format, like the workshop edition in 2019 and the online edition in 2020.
This time, we decided it’s time for something new. We wanted to distill what was most precious in the Scalar’s experience and get the most out of it, enabling people from all over the world to meet in person, get to know each other, and share their passion for technology. Instead of a standard conference, we introduce a 3-day long event in the Polish mountains, where everyone - speakers and participants live, eat, meet, and have fun together. Type safety becomes the main theme that gathers not only Scala, but also Java, Rust, Kotlin, Haskell, GoLang, Python and TypeScript developers. The unique location brings amazing networking opportunities while enjoying nature and outdoor activities.

Let’s make the most out of our community, the opportunity to meet, learn, and have fun together!
Check below the full list of reasons why you should attend TypeVille.
1. Advance as a programmer
Meet type safety enthusiasts and listen to talks about 8 different strongly typed languages: Scala, Java, Haskell, Rust, Kotlin, GoLang, Python and TypeScript. 3 days in the wild give you the opportunity to really dive deep into those strongly typed languages. Have longer, more meaningful discussions, share your own experiences, and, finally, have time to dig into details.
TypeVille will gather amazing speakers - experts in their fields and fans of type safety coming from different parts of the world and different programming backgrounds.
Here are just a few of the topics we’ll have a chance to listen to and talk about:
In this presentation, Hugh will look at some of the highlights of how the Akka Team designed and developed Akka Typed. He'll look at some of the more surprising new features added along with Akka Typed, such as significantly improved actor behaviour patterns and a robust new set of out-of-the-box actor patterns.
And obviously, our CTO Adam Warski prepared something special for you as well!
This time, he won't talk about Scala (shockers!) but about Unison. Sounds mysterious? Get tickets today and make sure, nothing type safety related will pass your attention! TypeVille Regular Price tickets available here till March 15th.

2. Extend your network
One of the SoftwareMillers met Hugh McKee at a conference. They had great discussions, got to know each other and thanks to that, Hugh agreed to join TypeVille. It shows how big the power of building connections is. It starts with every new person you meet, every chat over coffee and every question you ask. TypeVille will give you endless opportunities to spend time with like-minded engineers. People with a great passion for technology that love programming, self-development, and meeting other developers.
3. Enjoy the Polish mountains
Imagine a place surrounded by mountains, beautiful forests, and amazing nature. There is no better place to do fun outdoor networking activities than Czarny Potok Resort. Spend quality time with other amazing developers, get a chance to really get to know each other.

4. Get inspired
Join a session of lightning talks and get a flash of the most interesting stories, experiences, lessons learned, and insights related to type safety. Or maybe you have something you’d like to share? Every participant is welcome to submit a talk and add to the amazing experience. Lightning talks are a great way to step out of your comfort zone, broaden horizons or simply understand how type safety works in other languages.
5. Make the most out of your budget and time
We all carefully spend our development budgets. TypeVille gives you the opportunity to really make the most out of it. You go for 3 days to another city where you get rid of any distractors. The ticket includes accommodation, food, networking attractions, and a bus from/to Kraków, Katowice or Rzeszów.
Still none of us knows what the world will look like in the Spring. That's why we offer you a risk-free, cancel anytime & get a full refund policy til the 5th March 2022!
