Erlang DC R13B
Saturday, December 7, 2013 from 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM (EST)
February's ErlangDC 2013 Epic One-Day Erlang Conference was so awesome, we just couldn't wait for 2014 to do it again!
In the morning...
This time around, we have two wonderful options in the morning to choose from...
- "Intro to Elixir" bootcamp
Are you interested in Elixir, the hot new programming language created by Jose Valim, member of the Ruby on Rails Core Team? ("This is good shit," says no less than Joe Armstrong, one of the Fathers of Erlang.) Then register via an "Intro to Elixir" morning bootcamp ticket, and spend the morning learning how to easily build highly-reliable, highly-scalable server systems using Elixir, and why it (and Erlang/OTP) should be in your programmer's toolkit.
- Advanced Topics workshops
But, what if you are an experienced Erlang/OTP developer? We haven't forgotten you! Register via an Advanced Topics workshops ticket, and spend the morning learning cutting-edge techniques: a session on practical property-based testing using PropEr, and Hacking Riak via custom WebMachine endpoints.
And in the afternoon, the conference...
After the lunch break, all attendees be treated to presentations by some of the most expert Erlanguatans from around the world, on how and why they use Erlang and OTP in the real world to solve complex problems.
Details are on the ErlangDC site, but the highlights are:
- building highly scalable, highly reliable gaming platforms
- interconnecting Java & Erlang
- two presentations on using Erlang in embeddable systems
- a distributed Elixir mini-hackathon
Come to ErlangDC R13B. Meet fellow Erlang (and Elixir) enthusiasts from DC, the nation, and the world. Learn Elixir and advanced Erlang/OTP practices. Hear inspirational tales of prodigious feats of programming, swap war stories of your own, and make lifelong friends over pints at the post-conference social.
And, just one more thing...
Did we mention that, as a present to YOU, all tickets are at a special low holiday price. Yup, it's true. If we could wrap it in a bow, we would.
(And, if you don't know, December is an especially nice time of year to visit Washington DC.)
ErlangDC R13B. Reliably awesome. Just like Erlang.
