Bio

Larry Wall is the creator of the Perl programming language. Larry oversees development of Perl and serves ‘as the benevolent dictator for life of the Perl project.'' Perl’s increased flexibility and potential was brought on by its Perl 6 redesign, offering world-class support for Unicode, FP, OO, concurrent, and reactive programming.

The Erlang & Elixir Factory SF Bay Area 2017 conference took place between 23 - 24 March with training between 20 - 22 March and 27 - 30 March. The conference explored the programming themes of distribution, concurrency, multicore and functional, it went deep into frameworks, delved into case studies and looked at the right tools for the task at hand. The conference has been evolving over the past few years and our community has grown beyond Erlang to encompass a more diverse range of languages from the Erlang Ecosystem. Next year, in recognition of this, we will be re-branding the conference to Code BEAM SF 2018, still in San Francisco and still with top-notch talks and speakers from the BEAM community.
