A note to say that we have now opened the registration for the 2009
Erlang User Conference. It sold out in 2007 and 2008... We hope the new
facilities can accommodate everyone who wants to come this year.
Register by visiting the conference site here:
We are adding new speakers on a daily basis, do come by often or follow
@ErlangFactory on twitter or subscribe to the RSS feed on the site.
A bit of history on the conference. Until recently, Ericsson used to
host it in their conference facilities. With the help of sponsors, we
were able to keep the event free of charge. As a result, the conference
sold out in both 2007 and 2008, weeks before the program was published.
To avoid a sold out event and cater for future expansion, we have rented
the Astoria cinema in central Stockholm doubling the capacity. As a
result, we have to charge a small fee for the conference. Considering
that speakers still pay for their own travel and accommodation costs,
together with a strong backing of generous sponsors, we've been able to
keep the early registration costs under 999SEK (including VAT). This
includes proceedings, breakfast, lunch and an evening reception /
dinner. We are pulling every string we can to keep the costs low while
providing a top event. If anyone wants to help and sponsor the
conference and support Erlang, please drop me a line. Tutorials on the
Friday are open to everyone on a first come first serve basis,
irrespective of if you attend the conference or not.
Hope to see you there!
