Duration: Three days.
Registration: 08:30 on 21st March 2011.
Venue: Hilton San Francisco Airport Hotel.
Description: The course contains all the Erlang basics such as sequential and concurrent programming, along side error handling. The Erlang development environment is presented, with a special emphasis on the Erlang mode for Emacs alongside the major debugging tools. Good and bad programming practices are discussed, as are tools used to profile the system. OTP design principles and concepts are sneaked into the material as well as the exercises.


OTP Express

Please note that this course is now full and we are unable to take further registrations.

Target Audience:
This course is aimed at experienced Erlang Software Developers and Designers who need to understand Behaviours.
Prerequisites: Existing experience using Sequential and Concurrent Programming with Erlang on projects.
Objectives:
• Use existing Design Patterns supported by Erlang and OTP.
• Apply Generic Behaviours, Finite State Machines and Event handler Patterns.
• Use the Supervisor and Applicaton Behaviours Patterns.
• Write your own Design Patterns.
• Structure large Erlang based systems.
Goal: Design fault-tolerant systems.
Duration: Three days
Registration: 08:30 on 21st March 2011.
Venue: Hilton San Francisco Airport Hotel.
Description: You will learn the prevailing Erlang Design Patterns called OTP Behaviours. We will cover Erlang Design Patterns such as Generic Behaviours, Finite State Machines and Event Handlers. You will also learn how to develop systems using the Supervisor and Application Behaviours Patterns, so you can construct maintainable and fault tolerant software. Upon completion of this course, you will be able to extend it all, by devising your very own Behaviours.


XMPP with Erlang - ejabberd and exmpp

Target Audience: Software Developers
Prerequisites: Participants should be at least a little familiar with Erlang
Objectives:
• Learn how to setup an XMPP server with ejabberd
• Learn how to write XMPP clients with exmpp
• Learn how to extend ejabberd to meet your needs
Goal: Use Erlang to create amazing XMPP-based applications
Duration: Three days
Registration: 08:30 on 21st March 2011.
Venue: Hilton San Francisco Airport Hotel.
Description: You will get an introduction to the ejabberd XMPP server and the exmpp client library. In addition, you will learn how to extend ejabberd to fit your own problem domain. In case you're new to XMPP, you'll get a refresher on the protocol and its applications


Erlang and Test Driven Development

Target Audience : Developers and testers
Prerequisites: Knowledge of basic Erlang (equivalent to Erlang by Example or Erlang Express courses. OTP courses not necessary, but useful).
Objectives:
• Understand the principles behind Test Driven Development,
• Be able to use Erlang's principal testing tools (EUnit, Common Test, QuickCheck),
• Learn about tools to maintain and debug existing Erlang programs
Goal: Learn how to use existing tools of the ecosystem to help develop, debug and maintain Erlang software
Duration: Three days
Registration: 08:30 on 21st March 2011.
Venue: Hilton San Francisco Airport Hotel.
Description: You will learn test frameworks for unit tests, property-based tests and large-scale tests. We will cover Eunit, Common Test, QuickCheck for testing, then Wrangler, Dialyzer and tracing (among others) for maintenance. You will also learn principles of Test-Driven Development which will ultimately allow you to write more reliable and maintainable software.
