To all Erlang enthusiast

We have run Erlang projects for IT University students for 5 years now. This year we have a problem though... insufficiently many qualified supervisors! Everyone with Erlang knowledge has started working in industry.

In order to get more students educated, we would appreciate some help. If you are situated in Göteborg and would like to meet one or two student groups once a week (say 2 hours) to help them with Erlang questions and project in general, then please contact me.
Of course, we do pay for your effort, but far less than consultancy rates.

This is an excellent opportunity for companies to get in touch with future employees :0). Students really appreciate the help they get from experienced people from industry. This touch of reality is what motivates them.

In the project students develop a multi-user game in Erlang. However, if you have a project yourself that you prefer, then we can arrange that they help you instead.

We educate 60 students per year in Erlang and OTP. The education is build around projects of 2400 hours, which four students work on together (typically lasting around 15 weeks). The projects have a realistic industrial setting to stimulate the pedagogics of "problem based learning".
