CUFP 2013 Erlang Web Tutorial

September 12th, 2013  |  Published in conferences, erlang, web  |  Bookmark on

On Monday Sep. 23, 2013, I’ll be giving a tutorial on Erlang web development at the Commercial Users of Functional Programming (CUFP) conference in Boston. Please plan to attend if you’re interested in how various Erlang web servers and frameworks work. And don’t be afraid if you don’t know Erlang — I’ll also provide a brief Erlang introduction, so you’ll be able to follow along even if you don’t yet know the language. Or better yet, attend Francesco Cesarini’s and Simon Thompson’s Erlang tutorial that morning and get a great introduction to the language and its frameworks.

In fact, check out the whole CUFP schedule — in general there are a number of interesting talks at the conference part on Sep. 22, including my old friend Dave Thomas’s keynote, and a bunch of nice tutorials on the two following days. I’m greatly looking forward to attending Yaron Minsky’s and Anil Madhavapeddy’s OCaml tutorial and Dean Wampler’s Scala tutorial, since I don’t know either language (yet).

Hope to see you there!
