Erlang Factory London 2011

06 Jun - 10 Jun 2011

A PropEr Conference

This year's Erlang Factory London was a great success, with delegates attending from over 18 countries! Speakers included Robert Virding and Mike Williams, inventors of Erlang, Kostis Sagonas, the leader of the HIPE Team at Uppsala University, Marcus Kern, CTO at MIG, Steve Vinoski, distributed systems expert and Scott Lystig Fritchie, senior software engineer at Basho Technologies with many more in attendance.

The keynotes came from, Mike Williams, one of the inventors of Erlang and Kostis Sagonas, Leader of the HiPE team and Erlang tool developer at Uppsala University and the National Technical University of Athens. Mike gave an interesting talk on "Why Erlang was invented and a few things you don't want to tell your manager about Erlang." On day two of the conference, Kostis gave a "PropEr Talk" which looked at PropEr, an open-source, tool for property-based testing in Erlang.

Twitter was in full flow during the conference, with tweets including:

skarab: Phenomenal #erlangfactory. Job well done by @francescoc and everyone at Erlang Solutions. So many good talks; can't wait for vids I missed.

robertoaloi: First series of talks and first hard choice. Headed to the TDD track in the end. #erlangfactory

Delegates got the chance to see some of the top names in Erlang and find out how companies such as AOL, Yahoo!, Heroku, Basho and Ericsson are using Erlang!

There were also two new additions to the Erlang University this year ,with the introduction of the recently-launched Erlang Solutions course on Erlang and Test Driven Development and a one-day express course on Erlang and XMPP. All of the training courses were met with great enthusiasm and some had the chance to learn from Robert Virding himself.
