Hi All,

I wanted to let you have a quick update on the Erlang User Conference in 
case you are thinking of attending. Attendance is almost 50% over last 
year, with well over 200 attendees registered. We will be meeting with 
the owners of the Astoria Cinema in Stockholm next week to see if we can 
rent (and fit in) more chairs and increase the number of places. Until 
we have a definitive answer, we will have to close the registration as 
soon as we reach 220 delegates and open the standby list. If you know 
you want to attend, register ASAP. Early bird registration also ends 
next week (October 15th), and prices will go up. To register:


There was an overwhelming number of talk submissions, and the program is 
now almost complete (One last talk will be added on Monday). You can see 
more about the programme here:


On the Friday after the conference, there will be two events. The first 
is a Hackathon hosted by Kreditor. The second is a set of tutorial on 
Erlang and Test Driven Development given by the tool inventors and 
implementors. We will be opening the registrations for them next Friday. 
Conference attendance for either is not mandatory. You are welcome to 
either, free of charge, even if you do not attend the conference. More 
information on the tutorials is available here:


Sponsors this year have been many and plentiful! A BIG thanks goes to 
Tail-f, QuviQ, Process-One, Klarna (Formerly known as Kreditor), 
Corelatus, Ericsson, Synapse, Mobile Arts Erlang Training & Consulting 
and Ericsson for their generosity. If anyone else wants to give back to 
the Erlang community and help sponsor the event allowing us to keep the 
costs as low as possible, get in contact with either me or Frank, the 
conference manager (frank @ erlang-consulting.com)

You can help us by blogging, tweeting and talking about the conference. 
There is also an event on facebook you can register for. Get the word 
out. If you do, let us know and we will add your blog to the community page:


I will be attending and I will be speaking banners will be available on 

If you have any questions or thoughts, feel free to drop me or anyone 
else involved a line. Looking forward to another great EUC in Stockholm 
this year! Hope to see you there.
