Erlang and Elixir's popularity is growing but it's not always clear what off-the-shelf software is useful in production quality systems. In this track you will learn what existing production systems' maintainers are using to monitor and test their systems. This track will include the war stories and experience reports of novice and expert users alike. You will also learn from the leading experts and committers about new and leading frameworks such as (but not limited to) Phoenix, MongooseIM, Nerves and RabbitMQ. You will find out how these frameworks work, how to best use them and where not to use them.
Every new domain that Erlang and Elixir pushes into brings a new class of problems and a new class of solutions. In this track we'll learn from other's experience, where things have been peachy and where they haven't been so much. We'll all walk away with a more clear idea of how to build highly reliable software.
In this track you will learn from the leading experts and Erlang committers about new language constructs, virtual machine implementations and powerful libraries which together form the Erlang eco-system. Esoteric VM implementations are presented, alongside improvements and enhancements to the existing ones. You will learn how many of its features work and how to best use them to write fast and efficient code.
Scaling vertically by adding more powerful hardware is a thing of the past. We scaled horizontally, by adding more commodity hardware. With the coming of age of mega-core architectures, we have the choice of either adding more hardware or more cores, or both. Erlang style concurrency puts us ahead of the game when it comes to scaling with both approaches.
Whether it’s embedded devices, distributed systems or scaling, research is always at the heart of the BEAM community. In this track we’ll look at the most critical problems in the industry as a whole and possible solutions that can scale to millions of people.
The web and mobile applications landscape requires technologies that embrace change and multiple paradigms. In this track we’ll look at the state of the art in the Erlang and Elixir world to produce performant and resilient applications that stand the test of time, both in terms of scale and requirements.
This year at the #EUC17 we welcome back the Erlang User of the Year award.
If you know of someone who you think is deserving of this great honor please take the time to nominate them (link to follow).
The Erlang User Conference 2017 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.

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:
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. Take the Flygbuss to town, it's the only sensible option, it costs 139 SEK one-way. They leave whenever a flight arrives.
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.
