The Scala event in France!

Workshops / Spree, November 3rd and Conference, November 4th - Paris
Alexandre Archambault - VirtusLab
Alexandre Archambault
I've been doing Scala professionally since 2013, in ad tech, finance, then full time in open source, focusing on Scala tooling. I'm the main author of [coursier](, [Almond](, and more recently [Scala CLI](, developed with VirtusLab. I also contributed to [shapeless](, [Ammonite](, and have smaller contributions in numerous other Scala projects.
Adding Python support to Scala tooling
Short talk (25 minutes) | Intermediate
What if Scala developers could seamlessly interact with the ecosystem of Python, the most popular programming language in the world? While [ScalaPy]( brings us closer to that dream, Scala tooling needs to be adapted to interact with Python. In this talk, we'll review early efforts made in that direction in [coursier]( and [Scala CLI](, allowing users to easily run programs mixing Scala and Python code. We'll also discuss what's missing to make the Scala + Python developer's journey easier.
