Next monday the Erlang Factory conference starts in San Francisco. If you’re in the Bay Area and can make a last minute change of plans, it looks to be a milestone conference for the Erlang community.
The University is the 27th – 29th, with the Conference from the 30th-1st. Speakers include Robert Virding, one of the inventors of Erlang, Damien Katz (CouchDB), Chris Anderson, Rusty Klophaus (Nitrogen), Yariv Sadan (ErlyWeb), Eugene Letuchy (Facebook) and Ezra Zygmuntowicz, who will be a special treat for any fans of Ruby/Rails/Merb as he is the founder of EngineYard and a lead contributor to Merb.
Since our focus here tends to lean toward web development with Erlang, and as I’m a Ruby/Rails and Erlang programmer, I’m particularly interested in the talks by Yariv, Ezra, and Rusty. Ezra’s talk will be on Nanite, a self-assembling fabric of Ruby daemons communicating via RabbitMQ.
If you can’t make it to San Francisco, there is a similar conference in London in June.
Looks to be an incredible conference and I’m only sad that I won’t be able to make it this year.
