Scale By the Bay is in its 6th year. It is a flagship independent developer conference, a proven software and data engineering community event strong on advanced learning, open-source best practices, and industry focus on what works. We are powered by the global leaders in thoughtful software engineering working in the startups and enterprises of the Bay Area – and around the world – who build web-scale systems in ways that are rigorous, composable, correct by design, scalable, and performant.
We started as Funconf, continued as Scala By the Bay 2014 and 2015, Big Data Scala, and evolved into Scala+Scale=Scalæ, land then Scale By the Bay from the last year, reflecting the openness to the top programming languages, devops platforms, and as ML/AI stacks. Text By the Bay, Data By the Bay, and AI By the Bay followed. Scaling the whole stacks requires more than just advanced programming languages – hardware, IoT and devops need to work together. This year, we combine Data and Scale together in a three track, three day conference, known for production focus and engineering excellence both in software engineering and data science, and are bringing the two together.
We're light on product pitches – all talks have code or data. The community conference represents many San Francisco Bay Area open-source meetups comprised of tens of thousands of developers, with hands-on technology leaders as speakers who are known and respected by the engineering community around the world. We often introduce stacks that are pioneering and then take over the industry in the next few years. Check out an in-depth overview of the program for more details about this year, our strongest yet!
