Key Facts from our latest conference
 
Our latest conference, formerly called ‘The Erlang User Conference’ or EUC17, took place between 7-9 June and gathered 280 delegates. It was a two-day, multi-track conference on the Erlang & Elixir programming languages.. We focused on real-world applications of these, as well as on concurrency, distributed computing and scalability.

The majority of attendees were primarily Erlang developers 60%, followed by Elixir 23%. The remaining 17% were a combination of all the major programming languages, including all C language variations 6%, Java 5%, Ruby 3% and Python 3%.

Programming Developers, Engineers and Architects made up a total of 74% of all attendees. CEO/COO/C-level Executives made up 10%, whilst Development Managers made up 8%, Consultants 6% and Students 2%.

It can be seen that 70% of attendees came from Scandinavia (Sweden + ‘Rest of Scandinavia.’) Europe and the UK made up 23% of attendees, whilst the USA and the ‘Rest of the World’ made up 7%.

All attendees, speakers, sponsors and volunteers at our conference are required to agree with the following code of conduct. Organisers will enforce this code throughout the event. We are expecting cooperation from all participants to help ensuring a safe environment for everybody.

tl;dr: Don’t be inappropriate

We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks, workshops, parties, Twitter and other online media.

The Less Quick Version

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. 

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

Sponsors are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, sponsors should not use sexualized images, activities, or other material. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not use sexualized clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create a sexualized environment.

If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the conference organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the conference with no refund. 

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of conference staff immediately. Conference staff can be identified as they'll be wearing branded t-shirts.

Conference staff will be happy to help participants contact hotel/venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conference. We value your attendance.

We expect participants to follow these rules at conference and workshop venues and conference-related social events.
