Come create conversation, generate ideas, hack projects, hike, fish and mountain bike at the second annual Scala Summit! This year we hope to see the leaves change and you'll experience the glorious autumn weather at 9,000 feet in the Rocky Mountains.

This is the first iteration of an event we hope to evolve into something like The Java Posse Roundup, but with hiking and mountain biking instead of snow activities. We already have an impressive list of name-brand attendees.
