Scala Ambassadors

Scala Ambassadors

Scala Ambassadors are independent community members who are known and have been recognized for their contributions to the community. They are active and welcoming individuals, happy to help newcomers, organize events, teach, speak at conferences, create content, and otherwise contribute to the Scala community.

What does it mean for me?

Scala Ambassadors are here to help you. They are happy to answer your questions, help you get started with Scala, or point you in the right direction. You can ask an Ambassador, for example, about:

  • How to get started with Scala.
  • How to start speaking at a Scala event.
  • How to organize a Scala event.
  • General technical questions about Scala.

Contacting Ambassadors

At events, you can recognize an Ambassador by them having the following sticker:

Ambassadors can be contacted a variety of ways, varying by their own preference. In the list below, Discord usernames (when present) are on the Scala Discord.
