The Gory Details

PHASE tries to meet monthly, with meeting locations alternating between Center City Philadelphia and the suburbs. For information about our monthly meetings, see the PHASE Meetup page.

We welcome all kinds of talks at all levels. We welcome anyone who wants to speak, from rank beginner to speaking veteran. We don't care who you are: If you're excited to talk about something, we're excited to hear you.

PHASE organizers are actively involved in organizing conferences and collaborating with other technology user groups. We're especially interested in boosting technology in the Philadelphia area. After all, this is where we live. PHASE is one of three regional Scala groups behind the Northeast Scala Symposium.
