The Erlounge at the Erlang Factory will be open to non-conference delegates! The Erlounge will be open, not only to delegates from the Erlang Factory, but also to others who are interested in Erlang. Members of the London Erlang-User group are especially welcome. Attending is free, but to allow us to plan, you have to register here

This year we will be ending the first day with a series of “Birds of a Feather” talks. These will run from 17.20 to 18.20 and are also free to attend. Topics include the following:

    * Erlang, Websockets & HTML5
    * Erlang, Continuous Integration and Test-Driven Development
    * Erlang Extension Proposal Panel Debate

These will then be followed by the Erlounge at 18.30 with food being served at 19.00. There will then be 10min lightning talks from 19:30.

So far we have talks from:

Fred Hebert
Abstract: Fred will talk about anti-patterns used by Erlang programmers, bad practices and things that irk him when working in Erlang.

Hunter Morris
Title: Socket.IO meets RabbitMQ
Abstract: The Smarkets website has a very strong real-time component which results in events being pushed directly to the browser. Unfortunately, the implementation of a "push" component requires many different transports to cope with the minefield of browser compatibility. He will present an OTP application which implements the main Socket.IO transports and allows for other applications to act as a bridge. For example, AMQP is a large part of the Smarkets architecture and a simple bridge to the Socket.IO server was all thatwas needed.

Thomas Pomfret
Title: Global roster in ejabberd
Abstract: A quick run through of how Mint Digital solved the problem of needing a global roster in ejabberd, the eventual solution involved an ejabberd module so he will touch on lessons learnt there.

If you would like to give a lightning talk during this time, please do let me know. Just send me a talk title, a quick abstract and a bit about yourself.

The venue for both of these will be:

The Old Sessions House
 22 Clerkenwell Green
 London EC1R 0NA
 United Kingdom

We look forward to seeing you there!
