ACM Erlang Workshop is almost here: 30 September 2010

Good afternoon, everyone.  The 2010 ACM Erlang Workshop is now less
than a month away.  There are plenty of seats still available, so
please make your registration & travel plans now to Baltimore,
Maryland, USA.  :-)

The URL has the full program
& schedule.  We're happy to have David Smith from Basho Technologies
as our invited speaker(*).  The title of his talk is "Concurrent
Life, the Universe, and Everything Rebar"

We will also be adding 5-minute lightning talks at the end of the
day, as many as we can fit in before they kick us out of the room
at 6pm.

I'll include a synopsis of the schedule below.  The papers this
year are excellent.  Several of them are going to spark a lot of
discussion & debate: at lunch, at session breaks, and over dinner
and beer/whiskey/beverage-of-your-choice afterward.

Also, I suggest that you look at the CUFP program (Commercial Users
of Functional Programming) for lots of interesting tutorials and

I look forward to seeing you in Baltimore!

(*) In the interest of transparency, David's name was suggested by
other Program Committee members long before I started work at
Basho.  After the PC agreed on David (whose nickname is "Dizzy"),
and he accepted, I've had multiple colleagues from Basho tell me
that they can't wait to hear Dizzy talk ... they don't care about
the topic, they're all certain(**) that it's going to be really good.

(**)  No pressure, Dizzy, honest.  :-)
