The Erlang User Conference 2013: Building Massively Scalable Fault-tolerant Systems

Between the 13th and the 14th of June, the Erlang User Conference in Stockholm will be the best place in Europe to discuss computing hot-topics such as Multi-core, Big Data, Cloud, Embedded, NoSQL and the future of the Web.

The Erlang User Conference has a long-standing tradition, reaching its 19th edition this year. The recent increase in the use and adoption of the Erlang programming language resulted in a packed programme with over 40 speakers and a total of 8 tracks. Companies such as Campanja, Ericsson, Klarna, Basho, Erlang Solutions, Tail-f, Spillgames and prestigious research institutes such as the The Swedish Institute of Computing Science and Uppsala University will be represented at the event.

Speakers will present, evaluate and illustrate with case studies tools and frameworks such as the ChicagoBoss web framework, the Disco MapReduce project, the distributed Riak database, the Elixir programming language running on top of the ErlangVM, the Erlang mode on the IntelliJ editor, and QuickCheck -the property based testing tool.

EUC 2013 will bring together on the same stage the inventors of the Erlang programming language Mike Williams, Robert Virding and Joe Armstrong, who will be giving a joint keynote about the past, present and especially the future of Erlang. Claes Wikström, author of Yaws and Mnesia, will give the second keynote and Bruce Tate, author of ‘Seven Languages in Seven Weeks’, will deliver the third keynote. Other well known Erlang experts talking at the conference include distributed systems expert Steve Vinoski, embedded expert Ulf Wiger, leader of the Ericsson OTP virtual machine team Patrick Nyblom and many more.

“Whether you have been coming to the conference from the first edition or this is the first time and you want to learn more about Erlang and its use cases, we guarantee you will get to see all leading Erlang experts under the same roof, and you will get to know everything about the latest projects and innovations in the world of Erlang. Also, the atmosphere and energy of the Erlang User Conference are not to be missed.” said Francesco Cesarini, Founder and Technical Director of Erlang Solutions - the conference organisers.

The Erlang Programming language and middleware was designed to build massively parallel, scalable and fault tolerant systems uniquely suited for multi-core architectures and the Cloud. Erlang is employed in many different scenarios – from telecom exchanges, through instant messaging servers, HTTP servers and web frameworks, database engines and many more. It also powers the leading distributed database, Riak.
