Bio

Joe Armstrong is the principal inventor of Erlang and coined the term "Concurrency Oriented Programming". At Ericsson he developed Erlang and was chief architect of the Erlang/OTP system. Robert Virding worked at Ericsson and was a member of the initial Erlang design group. Robert now works for the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) where he mainly works with computer games.

The Erlang Factory is an event that focuses on Erlang - the computer language that was designed to support distributed, fault-tolerant, soft-realtime applications with requirements for high availability and high concurrency. The main part of the Factory is the conference - a two-day collection of focused subject tracks with an enormous opportunity to meet the best minds in Erlang and network with experts in all its uses and applications.
