flatMap(Oslo) is an annual conference in Oslo, Norway. From the beginning in 2011 we have focused on functional programming in general and Scala in particular.

Last year's conference was yet another great success with about 100 energized attendants, listening to 23 amazing speakers from all over the world.

The next conference will be on May 14th and 15th 2020. The goal for this year is the same as before. Small and intimate, but with high ambitions. We hope you will join us.

flatMap(Oslo) is organized by a group of developers from Arktekk AS, a small independent consultancy based in Oslo, Norway. Together with our awesome sponsors we work hard to give you a conference tailored for enthusiasts of Scala and functional programming in general.

The economic goal for flatMap(Oslo) is to break even. We will put all funds into making the conference better.
