On Thursday 24th, after the first day of the Erlang Factory SF Bay 2011 conference, an Erlounge will take place at the Coyote Point Yacht Club.

Before the Erlounge there will be three sponsored talks taking place at the Hilton San Francisco Airport. These are free to attend and then there will be a free bus to take you to the Erlounge venue.

These talks will be:

How Nokia uses Disco to mine terabytes of logs daily - Ville Tuulos

A Tour of Basho's GitHub Repositories: What are they all for? - Scott Lystig Fritchie

Build custom realtime applications with U.C.Engine open source project - Alexandre Eisenchteter

If you wish to attend these talks all you need to do is register for the Erlounge and come along to the Hilton San Francisco Airport.

The first part of the Erlounge will be a series of 10-minute talks in an environment of beer, cool drinks and snacks. Delegates and guests are given the opportunity to present themselves, their Erlang projects or to discuss Erlang-related matters of interest. Email to submit your talk, or if there is space available, sign up on the night.

Talks will come from:

Joe Armstrong
The most beautiful program ever written
Why do we have have millions of web pages running javascript programs when we only need one? In this quick talk I'll show you how one web page will suffice for all your current and future needs

Yurii Rashkovskii
Agner: A Giant Nebula of Erlang Repositories
Libraries distribution mechanisms are key to the creation of a thriving ecosystem for any programming language. Agner is a new lightweight package index/manager partially inspired by Homebrew and
Clojars that is designed to bring simplicity and elegance to the way dependencies are managed.

John Hughes
Finding races in dets with QuickCheck
It's well known that there are bugs lurking in dets that cause problems in production, including loss of data, on very rare occasions--perhaps every month or two. This kind of behaviour is typical for bugs caused by race conditions. In this talk I'll explain how we used QuickCheck to quickly reveal five separate race conditions in dets, using a simple specification of less than 200 lines.

You can take a look at photos from last years event.
