The Erlang User Conference 2013: Building Massively Scalable Fault-tolerant Systems

May 17th, 2013 by

ESLlogoAs Founder & Technical Director of Erlang Solutions I just wanted to share with you that between June 13th & 14th, the Erlang User Conference will open its doors to over 40 speakers and more than 300 delegates from all over the world in Stockholm. They will be discussing hot-topics such as Multi-core, Big Data, Cloud, Embedded, NoSQL and the future of the Web.

For those who aren’t aware, the Erlang Programming language and middleware was designed to build massively parallel, scalable and fault tolerant systems uniquely suited for multi-core architectures and the Cloud. Due to the latest increase in the use and adoption of the Erlang programming language, this year the Programme Committee was pleasantly surprised by a record number of talk submissions.  In fact, a fourth track had to be added on both days and an additional talk to all tracks on the first day, making it the largest Erlang User Conference to date. The conference will feature 8 tracks: ‘Erlang and the Beam VM’, ‘Cool Tools and Gadgets 1’, ‘Big Data, Big Databases and Next Generation Analytics’, ‘Scalable Fault-Tolerant Architectures’, ‘Cool Tools and Gadgets 2’, ‘The Internet of Things’, ‘Agile and Test-Driven Development’, ‘Load regulation and Back Pressure’.

The Erlang User Conference is not only the biggest Erlang event in Europe, but also the oldest. It has been running each year since 1994, with one gap year in 1996, when the first version of OTP was created. In 2013, companies such as Campanja, Ericsson, Klarna, Basho, Erlang Solutions, Tail-f, Spil Games and prestigious research institutes such as the The Swedish Institute of Computing Science and Uppsala University will be represented at the event.

On the first day of the event the inventors of the Erlang programming language Mike Williams, Robert Virding and Joe Armstrong will be giving a joint keynote about the past, present and especially the future of Erlang. The keynote talks in the second day will be provided by Claes Wikström, author of Yaws and Mnesia and by Bruce Tate – author of ‘Seven Languages in Seven Weeks’. Other well-known Erlang experts talking at the conference include Steve Vinoski, Eric Merritt, Ulf Wiger, Henning Diedrich, ErikStenman, Pavlo Baron, Mahesh Paolini- Subramanya, Zach Kessin, Patrick Nyblom, Kostis Sagonas and many more. A full list of our fantastic speakers is available on our conference website.

Among other topics, speakers will present, evaluate and illustrate with case studies tools and frameworks such as the ChicagoBoss web framework, the Disco MapReduce project, the distributed Riak database, the Elixir programming language running on top of the ErlangVM, the Erlang mode on the IntelliJ editor, and QuickCheck -the property based testing tool.

In short, the Erlang User Conference will be the best place in Europe to learn more about Erlang and its use cases and get to know everything about the latest projects and innovations in the world of Erlang from leading Erlang experts.
