Erlang and Test-Driven Development, host: Thomas Arts

Erlang-based test automation has been used in commercial products - not least Erlang/OTP itself - for more than a decade, and research on Erlang and model checking has gone on for almost as long. This track covers test-driven development ranging from hands-on practical industrial experience to the latest news from the research front.

Enterprise Integration, host: Harald Weppner

Are you trying to figure out how to integrate Erlang with your existing languages and frameworks? You are not alone. Most companies are forced to consider how to introduce new technology without throwing out all their old stuff and retraining everyone. This track offers examples of integration at different levels.

CouchDB and Friends

This track introduces CouchDB from a personal, technical and business points of view. It is what we refer to as a virtual track, put together with many Couch DB related talks in other tracks. Come listen to the inventor of CouchDB Damien Katz and two of the main committers, Jan Lehnardt and Chris Andersson. The day will also feature case studies and a talk on another Erlang based distributed database.  If you are only interested in attending only thistrack and day, contact us for the promo code giving you 200 USD off the two day conference price.

Give me a break from Erlang, host: Jan Henry Nystrom

Perhaps your use of Erlang has made you curious about other functional programming languages? Perhaps you are faced with having to understand and interface with other languages in your work? Or perhaps you just want to learn something new? This track lets you widen your horizons and delve into things non-Erlang.

Erlang and the Web, host: Michal Slaski

As web services become ever more sophisticated and stateful and websockets and HTML5 a reality, we see a growing demand for back-end technologies enabling uninterrupted service, quick response time and complex logic. In response to this, a number of Erlang-based web frameworks and exciting Erlang-based web applications have seen the light. In this track, we take a closer look at some of them.
