Coronavirus: community support, and how you can help.
by Erlang Solutions
Let us know how we can help you.
The global outbreak of COVID-19 has impacted us all.
We hope that you are safe and extend our thoughts and best wishes to everyone who is directly affected by the crisis.
As these are unprecedented circumstances, we felt it was essential to work collaboratively with the community to ensure we are serving you effectively over the coming weeks.
In the interest of public health, physical meetups and conferences are being postponed and rescheduled. We pride ourselves on our connection to the community, and will be adapting to the current events to find alternative ways to share, inspire and connect users of the BEAM.
We are aware that in the current climate, the role of digital media is changing. Some of you are likely to be using it primarily to stay-up-to-date with the unfolding events, others may be using it to stay connected socially, while others will be minimising contact with social media to avoid COVID-19 anxiety.
In the interest of reaching you on the right channels, with information you need, we wanted your feedback. We will be doing all we can to support the community with the digital channels available to us, including free webinars, guides, virtual meetups and digital conferences.
We’d love your input to ensure this is productive, useful and empowering for the community. Please fill out this survey and tell us what content you’d like to see.
The impact of global health concerns on Code Sync events.
We have an incredible line-up of conferences for 2020, but due to the current global concerns around COVID-19, we have had to reconsider some of our plans.
We would love if you could fill out the survey mentioned above to help us understand your preferences for rescheduled events. As this is a fast-moving situation, we recommend you join our mailing list or visit the Code Sync website to stay up-to-date with the latest information.
Over the coming months, both Erlang Solutions and Code Sync will be working together to ensure that there is still a forum for communal knowledge sharing, where we can learn from and inspire other members of the BEAM community.
The Erlang Solutions monthly webinars will continue as usual. You can still register for our March webinar with the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, which will be held on March 25th at 17:30GMT.
We will also be running virtual meetups. The first of these will take place on Wednesday April 2nd. To increase the social feel, this will be run on Google Hangouts. You can register to receive details and reminders here.
Finally, we are looking into a series of virtual conferences. The first of these will take place on April 3rd. Head to the Code Sync website for updates.
