The 2013 Commercial Users of Functional Programming (CUFP) call for presentations is open. If you’re a practitioner using functional programming languages to build novel or interesting systems, please consider submitting a talk proposal.
The CUFP workshop is part of ICFP 2013, and the CUFP talks will be held in Boston on Sep. 24, 2013.

The Twelfth ACM SIGPLAN Erlang Workshop will take place on September 28, 2013, in Boston, Massachusetts, USA. See the call for papers for more details.
It’s a satellite event of the 18th ACM SIGPLAN International Conference on Functional Programming (ICFP), September 25–27, 2013. http://www.icfpconference.org/icfp2013/.
The PC is chaired by Laura M. Castro, and I’m serving as the workshop chair and as part of the program committee. We’re looking forward to receiving many excellent paper submissions from the ever-growing Erlang community.

I’ll be running a track and speaking at GOTO Aarhus 2012, which will be held Oct. 1-5 this year. Overall the conference program looks very strong, as usual.
If you’re registering for the conference, use my promotion code vino1000 to save yourself DKK 1000 (which on the date of this post is £108/€135/$168). For each registration using my promotion code, the conference and I will donate the same amount to Computers for Charities.
See you in Aarhus!

I’m looking forward to speaking about Erlang/OTP in the “Functional Programming Everywhere” track and also running the “Concurrency in the Large” track at QCon NYC, June 18-22. If you register using code VINO100 you’ll get $100 off your registration fee and the conference will donate $100 to a New York educational charity.
See you there!

At QCon London March 7-9 I’ll be hosting a track on Highly Available Systems, which I’ll describe in more detail below.
But first, be aware that if you register for the conference using promotion code VINO100, you’ll save yourself £100 off the registration fee plus I’ll donate £100 to the World Food Programme.
This track is compelling. As track host I focused on inviting speakers with significant experience in building and deploying real working systems that exhibit high availability, with the goal of maximizing the transfer of ideas, approaches, tools, and techniques from the speakers to the attendees.
- The track kicks off with Joe Armstrong, the father of Erlang, talking about building highly-available systems with Erlang.
- Next up, Mark McGranaghan of Heroku will present approaches they use at Heroku to ensure high availability.
- After lunch, John Allspaw of Etsy will talk about fault tolerance, anomaly detection, and anticipation patterns. John is well known for his excellent books on capacity planning and web operations. John is also giving the Friday morning keynote, “Resilient Response In Complex Systems”.
- Following John will be Jodi Moran, CTO at Plumbee, who will tell us about what it takes to build systems capable of going from zero to ten million users in 4 weeks.
- We’ll wrap up the track with Martin Thompson, a specialist in high-speed, highly-available and low-latency systems who helped build the LMAX Disruptor, who will talk about event-sourced architectures and what we’ve forgotten about high availability.
It’s gonna be great, no doubt, and I’m really looking forward to it. Hope to see you there!
I’ll also be giving a talk at the conference about distributed systems and Riak Core.
