Chicago Erlang is happening again this year on September 22. It's just a short drive to the south and our very own Jesse Gumm will be speaking. There's a great line up of speakers, include Joe Armstrong. It's a one-day, single-track conference and is fairly inexpensive. If you purchase before Sep 1, the early bird price is $99. After that, the price is still only $119. To sweeten the deal, Chicago Erlang has provided our user group a discount code mkefp that takes 15% off the ticket price.
Full conference details and the registration link can be found here: http://www.chicagoerlang.com/
I hope to see you there for a day of Erlang fun!
