Hi Garry,

I agree, the Erlang workshop was the best one so far. 100 participants 
at the Commercial Users of Functional Programming (Growing at this rate, 
the workshop will become larger than ICFP ;-) ) and 60 at the Erlang 
workshop are real records clearly showing the positive trends in the 
industrial use of FP.

One of the things we have done for the past three EUCs is provide Erlang 
and OTP courses in conjunction with the Conference. The week before the 
conference, we give a 5 day Erlang by Example, and on the week of teh 
conference, a 4 day OTP course, with a one day break on the Thursday for 
the conference itself. More information on the courses is available at


See you at EUC!
