WE'VE CHANGED SINCE

THE LAST ERLANG USER CONFERENCE!

 

 

Bye Erlang User Conference! Hello Code BEAM STO!

The Erlang User Conferences have been evolving for the past few years. The origins were about bringing together developers to spread the Erlang love and to share battle stories. Over the years our community has grown beyond Erlang to encompass a more diverse range of languages from the Erlang Ecosystem.

Today, to better reflect this, we are rebranding and aligning our events, including the Erlang User Conference, under a new name Code BEAM belonging to a global family of conferences called Code Sync. We are launching a new Code Sync website with all events, past talks and articles, so we hope you'll visit it soon! And see you at the next conference!

We are happy to answer any questions, simply get in touch info@codesync.global.

 

The EUC 2015 was awesome, like always! This year’s highlights were the news that Erlang will be Apache 2.0 licensed starting the next release and José Valim winning the ‘Erlang User of The Year’ award. If you missed the event, don’t worry! The videos and slides will be up on the website shortly. We also uploaded some photos here.
If you’re already thinking about next year’s Erlang User Conference, mark 15 and 16 September in your calendar right now!

Like every year, this is your chance to shine for 5 minutes at the ErLounge in the evening of 11 June! Share with the audience your latest project, an interesting topic (preferably tech-related), get feedback on a problem you're working on, or, why not, do a stand-up routine :)

Submit your Lightning talk HERE

Tutorials will take place at Ericsson in Kista on 10 June.

Tutorials are complimentary for Conference attendees. We have a limited number of places available, therefore the places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Please reserve your place via the Eventbrite widget below, making sure your choices do not clash with one another. The schedule for the tutorials is available in the Day 1 of the Programme. Please bring your macbooks/laptops, as most of our tutorials are hands-on.

Conference Venue

 

The Erlang User Conference 2015 will be held in the exciting, spacious building of the Münchenbryggeriet. This old building has been a characteristic part of the Stockholm skyline for over 100 years and until 1971 was used as a brewery. Since then, however, the venue has undergone fantastic refits and has seen the building transformed from the historic industrial space of the past into the bright and modern conferencing venue that you see today – marrying the old and the new to create a truly unique experience.

Getting to Stockholm

 

There are four airports within range of Stockholm.

Arlanda is the main airport, the major airlines fly there. You can get from Arlanda to Stockholm Central Railway station by:

  • Arlanda Express. Leaves every 15 minutes, takes about 25 minutes, costs 260 SEK (130 if you're under 26!) one-way. Comfortable but expensive.
  • Flygbuss. Leaves every 10 or 15 minutes, takes about 45 minutes, costs 105 SEK one-way.
  • Taxi. Won't save you any time, but it will cost more. The taxi company "Taxi Stockholm" has fixed prices to and from the airport, but make sure you ask for "fixed price". The fixed price for Arlanda to Stockholm City is 520 SEK + surcharges.

Bromma Airport is used mainly for domestic flights. There's a Flygbuss (20 minutes, 75 SEK one-way) and also normal public transport, e.g. you can take bus 152 to the station.

Skavsta and Västerås are two "budget" airports used by Ryanair, e.g. there are several flights to and from London (Stansted/Luton) every day. Take the Flygbuss to town, it's the only sensible option. They leave whenever a flight arrives.


Public Transport in Stockholm

Stockholm is not a good place to get around by car.

Public transport is excellent, though not cheap. There's a great webpage with timetables, maps and information. 

You might also check the Tourist Information. (Tip: the dots above the letters in station names such as Älvsjö are crucial).
