Conferences, Events & Meetups

Sharing knowledge is vital to growing open source community. As a business, we have an important part to play in creating comfortable spaces for the functional programming community to get together and exchange battle stories. We must be doing something right as our events seem to grow year on year.

Code Sync

Code Sync is a new family of global conferences powered by Erlang Solutions, consolidating the tech conferences we’ve been organising since 2008.

Code Sync is part of the same team and organising Code Sync conferences is a very important part of our business. Our common goal is creating comfortable spaces for the functional programming community to get together and exchange battle stories.

Creating Code Sync is part of the commitment we have made to open our tech conferences to a global audience and to spread the culture of Learn. Share. Inspire.
Code Sync also retains each conference’s individual personality, identity and focus as:

  • Code BEAM - Discovering the Future of the Erlang Ecosystem
  • Code BEAM Lites - Satellite events of Code BEAM
  • Code Elixir - Connecting the Elixir Community
  • Code Mesh - Exploring Alternative Tech​​

Meetup with Torben Hoffmann
London, October 2018

At Alert Logic we realised that most of our teams would be needing the same kind of not-provided-by-AWS functionality, so we decided to craft our own - for a lack of a better word - platform to solve the problem for all teams in one go. This talk is about the specifics of the AWS Lambda shortcomings and how we have chosen to address them.

Torben Hoffmann - Extending AWS with Erlang

Meetup with Jeremey Barrett
London, September 2018

If we intend to get better as an industry at building robust, reliable abstractions, we need to focus on the aspects of the runtime that make it possible to do so. I want to describe how and why I use Erlang, what I've done with it, and why it matters to the way that we, both inside and outside the Erlang community, approach the building of complex and distributed systems.

Healthy side of functional programming
Let's kick-off 2018 with a thought-provoking discussion on a very serious subject - your health.When discussing programming paradigms a lot of attention is paid to the mathematics and technology. What is missing is the impact they have on the dev's health. Combining ergonomics and cognitive psychology, this talk will try to demonstrate that functional programming inherently requires less typing and less reading, which is better for wrists, spine, and eyes. Functional programming is also better aligned with how a human brain works, thus putting less cognitive load and reducing stress.
