Bio

Fred Hebert is the author of Learn You Some Erlang for Great Good!, a free online (also paid, on paper) book designed to teach Erlang. He's worked on writing and teaching training course material for Erlang Solutions Ltd, then moved to writing real-time bidding software with Erlang for AdGear. More recently, he joined Heroku's routing team, working on large scale distributed systems in the cloud.

The Erlang Factory SF Bay is a two-day tech conference focused on the Erlang programming language. It brings together the rapidly growing community that uses Erlang in order to showcase the language and its various application to today's distributed environments. Those less familiarized with the language get first-hand accounts on how companies solve real-world challenges using Erlang. Training courses on Erlang, OTP and other tools ad solutions based on the language are usually organised around the conference.
