Interested in Erlang? You might consider attending Erlang Factory SF Bay Area 2010. Below is a message that Francesco Cesarini, conference organizer and co-author of the most excellent book Erlang Programming, sent to the erlang-questions list yesterday providing more information about the conference, especially pointing out that the Very Early Bird registration deadline is tomorrow (Sunday January 31). Hope to see you there!
a note to say that we are almost done with the programme for the 2010 SF Bay Area Erlang Factory. This year, we are lucky to have keynote speakers such as Joe Armstrong, Bjarne Dacker, Kenneth Lundin and Steve Vinoski. They will be giving four of the 35 scheduled talks on the 25th and 26th of March in the San Francisco Bay Area. The almost complete programme is available here:
The conference will be preceded by three days of University courses taught by experts such as Simon Thompson, John Hughes, Thomas Arts, Henry Nystrom and Kevin Smith. Come and learn Erlang, OTP, QuickCheck or Web Development with Erlang. More information on the courses are here:
This *Sunday* (January 31st) is the deadline for the very early bird deadline. Register by Sunday night and save $400 on the on-site registration price.
The conference hotel and venue is the SF Airport Hilton, a short BART / Caltrain ride from SF and the Valley. We have secured a very competitive price of US$109 per room and night at the conference hotel, this being one of the reasons for us choosing it. The other is the lower price of the venue, allowing us to pass on the savings to the delegates through a higher very early bird discount. We are planning an ErlLounge open to everyone who can’t make the two days on the 25th, and hope we will be able to surpass last year’s success. If you have thoughts or questions, you are welcome to drop me a line.
Hope to see you all there!
