What is your favorite Scala Days story or memory?
Signify have sponsored Scala Days for the last three years now, and our highlight has to be when we sponsored our very first event which was Scala Days Copenhagen in 2017. Not only did we get to meet Martin Odersky but we gave away a drone to a Scala Engineer who completed our Rubik’s cube challenge the fastest. This event allowed us to meet many people in the community who have become good friends.
For those who have not met Signify yet, can you please explain what the company does?
Signify Technology is a hub for everything Scala and Functional Programming-related. We are the only recruitment agency to specialize in Scala and we are passionate about helping developers find new Scala jobs globally! We are inspired by the Scala community and want to give back in any way we can by providing learning platforms such as meet-ups, workshops and sponsoring conferences.

What inspired you to participate as a sponsor at the 10-year anniversary of Scala Days?
Signify loves being part of the Scala community and we get excited about having the chance to meet everyone involved. Sponsoring and attending conferences is our way of saying thank you to the community for the amazing support we have had and the friendships we have created. A lot of developers we have worked with and many of the clients we are partnered with are attending so it’s nice to see friendly faces. Plus who wouldn’t want to celebrate that Scala Days has been around for 10 years!
