If you are interested in massively concurrent and scalable systems ready to tackle the multi-core revolution and conquer the cloud don’t miss the Erlang Factory SF Bay Area 2012, taking place in San Francisco from the 29th to the 31st of March.

From embedded to super computers, you will learn how Erlang is being used to solve problems in banking, online gaming, databases, the medical sector, messaging, PaaS, Automotive and Telecoms. We will have tracks and tutorials on big data, cloud computing, devops, case studies, and a business track, to mention but a few.

With four tracks per day and spread over three days, there will be plenty of talks for beginners and advanced users alike. Don’t miss Erlang Inventors Mike Williams and Robert Virding discussing software approaches used in the industry and the unique features of the Erlang VM. Or the Keynote talk from Jim Zemlin, Executive Director of The Linux Foundation painting a black and white picture of a world without Linux. Other highlights include Haskell and QuickCheck inventor John Hughes, distributed systems expert Steve Vinoski, alongside Francesco Cesarini, co-author of O’Reilly’s Erlang Programming. There will be ample networking opportunities and many social events.

For those of you not familiar with Erlang, there will be three days of training prior to the conference suitable for newbies with little or no Erlang knowledge to the advanced users. Choose between the Erlang Express, Erlang, the OTP Express or the noSQL Riak distributed database courses.

More details can be found on the Erlang Factory website.

We hope to see you there!
