About PHASE

The Philly Area Scala Enthusiasts (PHASE) is a user group for people in the Philadelphia, PA, region who are interested in the Scala programming language. If you're interested in Scala, programming on the Java VM, or functional programming in general, feel free to join us.

PHASE tries to meet monthly, with meeting locations alternating between Center City Philadelphia and the suburbs. In addition, PHASE is actively involved in organizing conferences and collaborating with other Philadelphia-area technology users groups. PHASE is one of three regional Scala user groups behind the Northeast Scala Symposium. In past years, PHASE also organized Scalathon, the first international Scala hackathon.

For information about our monthly meetings, see the PHASE Meetup page.

We're active, and we're growing. Join us!
