Hi all,

I will be giving a tutorial covering Basic & Sequential Erlang, 
Concurrency and Gen Servers as a replacement to Ulf Wiger's YOW! 
tutorial which had to be canceled at short notice. Lonely Planet (The 
guide book publisher!) has kindly volunteered one of their meeting 
rooms, seating anything from 5 to 100 people. The location is in 
Footscray, 5km from the city center. (A short walk from the station).

The tutorial will start at 9.00 - 14.30, on Satuday December 4th. When 
done, we should all head to downtown Footscray to grab a bite.

This hands on tutorial will give you an introduction to the Erlang 
programming language. You will learn the basics of how to read, write 
and structure Erlang programs. We start with an insight into the theory 
and concepts behind sequential and concurrent Erlang, allowing you to 
get acquainted with the Erlang syntax and semantics. We provide an 
overview of the error handling mechanisms used to build fault tolerant 
systems with five nines availability, and wrap up by introducing the 
gen_server, the most commonly used behaviour of the OTP middleware.


This is a hands on tutorial, so install Erlang on your laptop and bring 
it along with lots of questions.

Last catch.. While registration is free, we need to know who is 
attending. Drop me an email with your name, phone number and affiliation 
and I will forward all of the details. Please mark the subject Erlang 
Tutorial.

Really looking forward to visiting Australia again! It's been a while.

Francesco
