Keynote Speakers

Miles Sabin

Miles has been doing stuff with Scala for more than ten years, currently with Underscore Consulting. He is a cofounder of Typelevel and his best known project, the Scala generic programming library shapeless, is the weapon of choice wherever boilerplate needs to be scrapped or arities abstracted over.

Julie Pitt

In 2014, Julie co-founded Order of Magnitude Labs to develop AI algorithms capable of intelligent behavior, all written in Scala. She spent the previous 10 years developing JVM server-side applications in a variety of environments, from startups to government institutions. Most notably, she was a member of the team that first brought Netflix to a variety of popular platforms and launched the service internationally. Along the way, Julie made several round trips between engineering and management, calling Scala “home” since 2012. On the side, she enjoys hacking with hardware and occasionally dabbles in web development.
