we are trying to reduce the traffic on the erlang-questions list and do 
not always announce talks on it.

Join us for an Erlang London User Group meeting on Tuesday the 16th of 
June, where Ulf Wiger, Erlang Training and Consulting's newly appointed 
CTO will talk about Erlang Programming for Multicore, followed by beer, 
softdrinks and snacks. Be there at 18.00 for an 18.30 start. In order to 
attend this free event, you have to register. Registering allows us to 
plan refreshments accordingly, provide security with a list of names and

*Abstract:*With the increasing pressure to migrate to multicore 
architectures, more and more programmers take an interest in Erlang, 
with its reputation for near-painless scalability. In this session, we 
will cover examples of typical Erlang programs, studying which patterns 
scale well on multicore, and which ones do not. We also look at how to 
profile parallel applications, how to ensure their correct behaviour, 
and how to debug them.

*Biography:*Ulf Wiger became one of the first commercial users of Erlang 
(certainly the first in North America) when he bought a license in 1993. 
At the time, he was busy designing disaster response systems in Alaska. 
In 1996, he joined Ericsson and became Chief Designer of the AXD 301 
development. At nearly 2 million lines of Erlang code, AXD 301 is the 
most complex system ever built in Erlang, and probably the most complex 
commercial system built in any functional language. In recent years, Ulf 
has been involved in several products based on the AXD 301 architecture, 
and has been an active member of the Open Source Erlang community. In 
February 2009, Ulf began his new job as CTO of Erlang Training and 
Consulting Ltd.

Hope to see you there,
